A complete guide to setting up your
own system; revised and updated
Wood chips and sawdust in the woodshop
are not just a nuisance -- they can also present a significant
health hazard. But the good news is that this completely revised,
color edition of Woodshop Dust Control provides all
the information you need to protect yourself from wood dust.
Sandor Nagyszalanczy presents a complete overview of solutions to woodshop dust
problems -- including up-to-date information on the latest products. Sandor covers
everything from simple, inexpensive shop vacuums and portable collectors to full-blown
central dust collection systems with cyclic pre-separators.
You’ll learn how to protect yourself from respirable wood dust using masks,
respirators, and air-filtration devices. You’ll also discover ways to control
dust and capture the mountains of sawdust produced by portable power tools and
stationary machines. When it’s helpful, Sandor uses charts and graphs to
illustrate the information. With the advice in this book, you’ll get practical
information on designing, building and installing a system that’s right
for your shop.
