Last week I core drilled a hole for an extractor fan in the gf's bathroom.
Bloody hard bricks and it took me over an hour and half to drill it.
There was a bit of dust for her to clean up (and a lot of dust in the
air as seen on the photo)
She is still complaining about having to do a spot of cleaning a week later.
My slot cutter has dust extraction and again, whilst it's not perfect
it makes a big difference to how much dust is spread elsewhere. Again,
you can easily see what it's doing by how often you have to empty it!

Is it just me or do others get an enormous amount of satisfaction seeing large quantities of dust in the vacuum collection bin, knowing that if I wasn't vacuuming at source all that would've been in the air / on the floor?
At the risk of taking this a step too far (too late?), at the sight of seeing dust being sucked into the vacuum nozzle from beneath a drill bit I actually feel a strong temptation to keep drilling holes even if/where I don't need to!!
Hope you wore hob-nailed boots in the bath to protect your feet.
Acrylic bath ??
Cheap tiling. ? Social housing ??, so shouldn't the HA be doing this ?.
Did she wash it all down the plug hole, followed by some Qtips and
wet wipes too ?.
DeWalt Challenger boots, a council house, enamel bath with dust sheets
in it - not that they did much apart from collect rubble, one tile is
upside down (you cannot see that because of the dust), the dust was
picked up by Henry and not flushed down plug hole.
It may be the LA's job to do the work (if needed). The bathroom is not
damp or mouldy however the recent addition of two kittens means the
window cannot now be left open. It is her choice to have the kittens not
the LA's choice so I decided to fit a fan and make sure the bathroom
stays mould free.
She "probably" should have asked for permission for the work doing but
she will just apply for retrospective permission when/if they notice the
work has been carried out.
 The cavity wall is full of rubble.
 I also fitted spot lights and I will soon fit an electric shower
without prior permission.
