If you love the use and professional results of rotary nail grinders like the inexpensive Dermel® Moto Tool, but you are sick and tired of the dust, irritating spray of nail polish chips, dangerous flying bits of nails, and the health hazards that go along with it, then this is going to be an exciting article for you.
Robert S. Whitman, president of Protective Specialties Development Group, and patented inventor of the internationally used Vac-U-Shield® dust eliminator, proudly announces the important companion to the rotary nail grinder itself. It’s called the Vac-U-Shield® “D” series. The patented Vac-U-Shield® is already being used by thousands of other industries across the USA, Canada, and other foreign countries. It’s something your friends should know about too!
Here is what they have said about the Vac-U-Shield® now being safely used in other industries, faced with the same toxic grinder dust potential such as: veterinary, wood carving, taxidermy, dental mechanics, ceramics, etc.
I ordered a Vac-U-Shield when it was first mentioned in the magazine, and must say that I am most pleased with it. Please enter my name on your mailing list.

...I am writing in response to questions your customer service dept. had regarding our satisfaction with the Vac-U-Shield system. We find it makes a noticeable difference in taking the fine dust out of the air immediately, creating a safer work place, and eliminating a lot of cleanup. I would recommend the use of the system to anyone who grinds wood, bone, nails or fiberglass – it can only reduce the chances of breathing the hazardous dust created, and it is definitely a big help in our shop.

I bought a Vac-U-Shield dust eliminator which has been most helpful in keeping dust from my lungs. A lung problem requiring X-Rays several years ago showed grinding dust was accumulating in my lungs. A recent X-Ray showed NO DUST. I attribute this to the use of your fine product. I’d be LOST without it.

Please send me an additional Vac-U-Shield #V917 dome. As advertised... I find it really works. I use it with my Dremel and my larger hand piece Foredom. You have a great product. Enclosed find my check.

I recently purchased a Vac-U-Shield. To say that I am pleased with it would be a gross understatement. My shop stays clean and don’t have to wear a dust mask. It works!

Please send me a Vac-U-Shield for my other Dremel Moto Tool. I thoroughly enjoy using it on my Foredom. Thanks.

(Excerpt from a letter from another satisfied user)
“.....and I have been using a Vac-U-Shield for more than 10 years now, connected to my Foredom. It is probably the best piece of equipment I have purchased and you have my permission to use this letter.”

CAUTION TO OBSERVE WHEN GRINDING PET’S NAILS
Recent findings from the National Institution for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) state that breathing airborne dust and irritants can cause cancer, emphysema, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, nasal adenocarcinoma, and other forms of Cancers and infectionsin otherwise healthy people. “In addition Whitman added, “Some dogs suffer with foot fungus along with bacteria that grow under the nails. When you use rotary grinders without a protective shield,
this bacteria and fungus spores may be sprayed into the air which can cause toxic infections if they contact your eyes or enter your lungs”. The clear shield allows you to see your work while helping to protect you from potential hazards...a significant difference from working without the protective shield.
NO SPECIAL ATTACHMENT TOOLS NEEDED – EASY ON, EASY OFF
The Vac-U-Shield® D series easily attaches to most models of the popular and inexpensive Dermal® and similar type grinders without the need of tools, in seconds. Its unique crystal-clear shield protects your face, eyes, and lungs by capturing the dust, dirt, and debris the
instant it’s ground from the dogs nails. And MOST important...it does so before it can enter your breathing space. The debris is captured under the clear protective shield and swirls rapidly through the SUPPLIED high velocity vacuum hose, directly into your own standard, any type vacuum unit. It’s light as a feather and completely maneuverable regardless what size or breed you’re working on.
Vac-U-Shield® series D was created for Groomers
Includes the protective shield and the seven foot connecting hose installedWhat’s more, the constant cool air flow also carries away the intense friction heat commonly associated with nail grinders. That means nails stay cooler while being ground smooth and snagfree. Cooler nails mean a more comfortable, cooperative animal. Since the Vac-U-Shield® D was created for Groomers both Professional and amateur, it doesn’t matter if your right or left handed.... Vac-U-Shield® D series works well for everyone.
