Your woodworking dust collection system is one of the most important systems needed in your shop. When trying to control the woodworking dust in your shop a bit of research will tell you that there is a lot more to consider than just running out and buying a shop vac.
Wood dust is more than a just a nuisance. It can be a major health hazard to your eyes, nose and lungs. Wood dust will also ruin a good finish, is a fire and explosion hazard, and it will destroy moving parts on your machines.
Careful attention should be paid to the type and quantity of sawdust produced by each machine and how to collect it efficiently.
Sizing your dust collector so it is capable of collecting even the finest dust particles takes some professional help.
When you're ready to buy and set up your dust collector look for a company that has a design service for your machines and ducting. Your supplier should be able to design your layout and provide the collector and ducting...set up just for your shop.
