In China, more than 140,000 people die from Pneumoconiosis yearly. A lot of these casualties are workers and carpenters who do not use any anti-dust protection on the job. Dust Free Cutter offers an alternative to workers by reducing the amount of sawdust in the air during wood cutting work. To use, simply attach any used plastic bottle filled with water and screw it to the top of the woodcutter. Since water washes down all the dust produced from wood cutting, there will be less sawdust flying around while cutting wood. The water also cools down and protects the cutting wheel. By reusing plastic bottles for this purpose, it is also friendlier to the environment.
