Air filtration and dust collection

Recommended Posts

Morning! Now that winter is settling in to stay a while I'm cleaning up the home workshop for a winter of productive bait making. One of the things I need to figure out is air filtration and dust management. Previously I've been painting outside, sweeping wood dust, and always wearing my respirator. This year I'd like to get some more permanent infrastructure in place for added workplace safety and cleanliness. I'm looking at getting a standing dust collector for wood particles, a hanging air filtration system for loose plastic/paint fumes, as well as an airbrush fume hood for paint fumes at the source. Already got a good respirator so that base is covered. 

My question is this; are there any airborne hazards or cleanliness issues that this investment doesn't cover and is there a singular machine that can do all of the above without my needing to buy three different machines?

You can make your own hanging filtration by using a box fan. make a box to hold the fan and filters in front and back.

also a shop vac, with a cyclone hood on a 5 gallon bucket. you can Google everything you need, or YouTube.
