fact, dust collection is really somewhat of a misnomer.
Dust collectors are actually collecting mostly wood chips
and particles. The dust, for the most part, winds up in the air. To
protect yourself from that dangerous airborne wood dust, you either
need to wear a respirator/mask or, for the highest degree of safety,
use an Air Cleaner as part of your dust collection process. One of the
best is the #24770
JET AFS-1000 Air Filtration System. This high-quality system
features an electrostatic filter which removes 98% of all particles
five microns in size. This technology also removes micro-particles of
smokes, viruses, bacteria, and fine dust at the rate of 25 times more
effectively than an ordinary home furnace filter. And it cleans and
circulates the air in a 20 x 20 x 8 shop in under five minutes!
Woodworking and Hardware has everything you need to set up a complete,
thorough, and efficient dust collection system.
