Think there's something wrong. You might get a tiny bit of dust as the brushes bed in, but to leave "soot" on the workpiece seems like a more sinister problem IMO.

Just use for 30 minutes on wood you dont need, I am betting that stops. Sounds like new  brushes thats all.

The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.
