    I rented the drywall vac from Home Depot.


    Drywall Dust Vacuum 9 Gal

    category #09 group #994

    Pair with many dust generating tools to effectively collect airborne particles, for virtually a dust-free environment. ƒPerfect for accompanying electric tools, such as a concrete grinder, concrete saw and floor sanders to reduce dust contamination and cleanup. Quiet operating sound level of 59 dB(A).

    I didn't know home depot rented those things.

    $27.00 Per Day / $108 per week at my home depot.

    Good to know.

    I did the kitchen floor, not too large of an area and would have used a shop vac with a long hose out side, as TOG is doing ...but? I would need 40 feet or more. The two car garage is actually the only entrance to the kitchen. With a walk out basement, dangling it out a kitchen window would be a 26 ft drop. I thought about just leaving the vac in the garage ...but I spent a lot of money out there. All in all, 4 days of tearing up tiles, scraping excess in preparation for a 1 day rental of the vacuum was less money than buying 50 feet of vac hose or trashing a garage [during winter time].

    I use my shop vac for cleaning my gutters so I have a 20 foot hose and a 10 foot hose. I have an angle grinder and the shroud and cutter bit was less than 50 bucks. Since the living room has a door and 2 windows (3 sides) using the shop vac outside won't be a problem at all. I also ordered a respirator and filters. I am hoping it works as advertised. In this case, buying the blade and shroud will be cheaper than renting and I can work at my leasure. I have collected a LOT of tools that way!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Clearly you guys are smarter than me--last time I used a grinder like that to clean up a concrete floor--I used it without a vacuum attachment.

    I have also used the air chisel method for removal--it works really well if the last tile guy was bad at his job, but stage 2 (cleaning up the thinset) is a POA no matter what method you use.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    Yes but now you know too! The tools are waiting at home for me this afternoon when I get home. Paying work is going to be first though.

    I have an upcoming kitchen, foyer, 1/2 bath, and laundry room makeover. The old tiles are coming up. I am glad there is a third option other than ripping up the subflooring or laying luan over a scraped floor. I am anxious to see the results and the time involved per sq. ft of grinding.

    About 2 hours and it is for sure the tool for the job! However, I highly doubt that my angle grinder is going to live through this job. Although, I think I paid 20 bucks for it?

    Shux, if you never used that angle grinder again it paid for itself with this job, and the new one that replaces it.

    But if you don't mind me sayin', maybe cover up that, is it a cold air return.

    I burned up the grinder this morning, bought another, the clerk tried to sell me an extended warranty. "no thanks, if it makes it through today, I am good" SOB LASTED 20 MINUTES!! I returned it, "anything wrong with it?" She opened the box and the burned electric smell almost knocked her over. "Go get another one" You gotta be kidding! Money back! Went to Fleet Farm and bought a porter cable. Used it all afternoon, never ever got warm. (6 bucks cheaper than the 20 minute wonder). I laid out 150 feet of air hose and used the pneumatic chisel to clean up around the hearth. I left LOT of DNA, all over the place!

    BUT, I have all the thinset removed! Tile is in the van.

    I am REALLY tired and sore. (I left about a square foot of crap (tile AND thinset) on the footing for the hearth for my wife to do, just so she KNOWS, what is involved!)

    Yes I'm sure, that doesn't mean I'm right.

    My back hurts just looking at those pictures.

    If you don't fall asleep with that 2nd beer in your hand, you may not have worked hard enough.

    If it's a pint, and a strong one, T0G should fall asleep before he can get the 2nd.

    Otherwise, it's back to work for T0G!

    In two minutes, the sun will be over the yardarm in my neck o' the woods.

    In honor of T0G's hard work, I have a pint o' beer ready to crack in T-minus 90 seconds.

    Cheers T0G!
