Buckethead shopvac filter for fine particles

I am going to be doing some cutting and grinding of stucco, concrete blocks, cement boards etc...and it will create a lot of dust.

I have one of those Buckethead shop vacs that you fit over a five gallon bucket and it uses a cheap paper filter. I don't think those filters would work against fine particles like cement and drywall dust and if it does it would clog in a minute.

Are there filters made for fine particles that I can use for that vac? Or are there any tricks anyone care to share? I know about keeping the saw or grinder wet to minimize dust in the air at the expense of creating "slurry" and splashes all over so that won't work in most of my cases.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Buckethead shopvac filter for fine particles

those bucket head vacs arent designed for dust extraction.. you need a heavy duty shop vac with a hepa filter or a actual dust extractor rated for concrete work
