Default Dust Control- new sub forum created

In discussion with Cricket a new sub forum has been created dealing specifically with dust control issues such as dust collectors, dust collector piping, fittings, and attachments, user worn personal dust control devices, and dust hazard discussions.

We've always seen interest in this issue and it seems that it is gradually becoming more of a hot topic as more people are finding out how hazardous workshop dust is to their lungs and health in general. We are also seeing new members now who appear to have come to this forum to see what information is available here. By having that information in one clearly identifiable place will help in accessing what information has been shared here.

I know there is one active dust control discussion at this time which I'll move into this forum now and if anyone knows of or comes across old threads on the subject please contact myself or one of the other Moderators and we will move that thread to this subforum with the exception of threads that Cricket started as discussion topics. She asked that those threads stay put. We hope everyone will find this an improvement by having DC issues stand alone now.

Perfect timing for me! In the next couple of weeks I plan to convert/modify my HF dust collector to a two-stage unit and planned to document the steps for posting.

Kudos to Charles and Cricket for looking out for us. This is a topic that definitely needs to be updated regularly. The discussions to date have been very beneficial and I have made several upgrades to my DC system based on those discussions and as a result my neighbor has copied a number of the same. It is never to late to realize the value of good air.

Nice idea. There was a very long discussion a couple of years in which many technical issues were covered.

Good idea. Thanks Chuck. I will see if I can find my Harbor Freight mod and homemade cyclone separator.

If you come across it again Tom then copy the URL and pm it to me and I'll move it into the new sub forum.

Maybe a CNC sub forum should be created for the same reason.

Just saw an advert for a “new” air cleaning system aimed at the woodworking market:
