It really does work just like it claims. Have cut 11 downlights today without sight of the normal dust shower that covers you and your drill. Wish I had one ages ago and thought of the idea!

Or better still, don't install downlighters, no need for one then!

I have one and its the best £16 i've spent.

Did a job last year, 12 holes in the ceiling. Customer could not believe there was no dust anywhere when id finished. Well worth the money!!

Apparently it was designed by a spark who was allergic to the plasterboard dust!! Clever idea!

I have been using a starrett one for the last 3 or 4 years, I don't cut a hole in a ceiling without it, mine is more of a pudding bowl shape.

I use my shoulders and face they seem to catch the bulk of it, the rest is sucked equally into each of my lungs.

With that Dade cover do you just guess where the holes going? It doesn't look like you can see the drill point? Or do you drill a pilot hole first, using a hoover to suck up the dust :-)

you can see the drill point but you do need to be right up there with it on steps.
