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.

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.
