Removing plaster practically dust free???

Does anyone know anything about removing plaster from plaster/lathe walls without creating alot of dust?? Is there somekind of solution to spray on it or something to keep the dust down but will also soften some of the harder spots.?? ANY HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

Bring the hose inside dude.

Wet the plaster. Ofcourse, double the weight of it when you do that.

Never done it, but I have heard of people cutting through the lath & plaster (horizontally and vertically) so they could remove it in chunks instead of a lot of little pieces. If you are lucky, the plaster will hold onto the lath and hold things together.

Ok. I have never done this before, nor do I know if it will work. This is just an Idea I had that may prove sucessful, or may turn out to be a disaster. Maybe you can apply contact paper or wallpaper to the exposed side. Then once it's stuck on good, try to remove the plaster and lath together in one shot. If you try this, post your results.

PS: I'm a newbie and dont know what I'm talking about
