The erasing surface (543) of erasing tissue (54) is for erasing something during its up and down operation on the desired place by pressing the erasing tissue (54), wherein the hollow hole (541) will be an inlet for dust and those dusts will be inhaled into the inhaling components (33) with its strong suction power and forward to dust collecting bag (20), hence the hollow hole (541) will be the first conduit of dusts.

For the erasing tissue (54) and connection panel (53) are adhered together, as the erasing tissue (54) is broken or exhausted or other else which can be torn off for convenient renewing a new erasing tissue (54) anytime.

Please refer to Fig. 10 and 11, a positioned tank (60) is set below a blackboard and a convex pillar (62) is set at the bottom chassis (61) of positioned tank (60). The convex pillar (62) has a hollow shape and an elastic film (63) is mounted on its edge opening section (621), wherein the convex pillar (62) is aligned and responds every hollow hole (541) of erasing tissue (54), where for placing the retired eraser (50) at the positioned tank (60).

Please refer to Fig. 1, 2, 8 and 9, since switched the power supply switch (101) of external housing (10) to "on" position, the power supply will be conducting to the said a dust collecting apparatus for eraser under a standby status. As the eraser (50) being using to erase something, by a slight pressing to the starting button (511) of holder (51) where a start signal will soon be transmitted via digital wireless-remote controlling device (514) onto and received by the sensing switch (102), then a command will be transmitted and reaches the inhaling components (33) for commanding the inhaling components (33) going on air-inhaling, so the dusts generated from the operating of the erasing will be inhaled into the inhaling components (33) and inwardly into the dust collecting bag (20) of interior housing (30).

Please refer to Fig. 9, the dusts must enter the hollow hole (541) of erasing tissue (54) at first and then pass the dust-conducting tunnel (521), dust-conducting hole (522) through vacuum chamber (502). As the dusts reach the vacuum chamber (502), of them will via an opening and then enter the jointing pipe (515), pass through the dust-conducting pipes and components (40), and lastly said dusts will be inhaled into the dust collecting bag (20).

Please refer to Fig. 10, 11 and 12, the shape of the blackboard in the classroom is rectangle. The length of the jointing pipe (515) may be too long and more inconvenient for the user if only one eraser being or been used in the classroom, so two erasers (50) will be appreciated. But, when the two erasers (50) being used at the classroom, as one of the erasers (50) is on duty for erasing something by pressing the starting button (5 11) for starting the inhaling components (33) on duty, the eraser (50) will be operating the dust-inhaling. The other eraser (50) not on duty shall take action as the duty one eraser (50) does, for the real situation is that only an eraser (50) is erasing something but the other eraser (50) is operating its dust-inhaling, which making the function of dust-inhaling is not very effective. So a solution is that, as one eraser been using on its duty and the other eraser will be placed at positioned tank (60) on its free by its hollow hole (541) of erasing tissue (54) to correspond the convex pillar (62) of the tank (60) for placing into the positioned tank (60). As one of eraser (50) is on duty, the other eraser (50) is free and taking dusts-inhaling either. But the free eraser (50) will inhale the edge opening section (621) of convex pillar (62) as air-flowing to project the edge opening section (621) as a ball like for blocking the conduit of eraser (50), hence the eraser (50) can not be in vacuum as well as the function of dusts-inhaling is as normal.
