Ok, thanks.  One more question, would using a festool cyclone cause it to loose it's HEPA certification?  Or would it still be ok? I need to collect lead paint chips from my house while striping and sanding the wood siding smooth before repriming it and Painting?

 Regardless, it would be a bad idea to use the cyclone for lead paint due to having to deal with emptying it as opposed to just closing up the bag.

Is It possible to get the 2 layer H class bags that are available in Australia and use them to help with getting the cleanest air when removing-lead based paint? Or is that possible by using a ac style Bag or just a clear bag in between the normal bag and the wall of the dust extractor to get the same result?
