Control the Dust and Breathe Easier

Wood dust is not only messy and annoying - it can pose countless health and safety hazards in the home workshop. Weekend woodworkers can develop allergies that will only worsen with increased exposure, and any random spark can turn a pile of dust into a serious fire hazard. Getting wood dust - especially the fine dust - under control is a critical and necessary step in any productive woodshop.

As part of the Tool Smarts Series, Workshop Dust Control is a must-have book for all woodworkers, regardless of skill level. It covers everything you need to know to set-up a safe and clean work environment.

This helpful guide includes expert information on:
- The five simple rules for a dust free shop
- Finding the right vacuum for your workspace
- How to minimize dust from portable power tools
- Dust collection systems, air compressors, and air scrubbers
- Practical solutions for making tools work cleaner
