Woodman created the topic: Dust Collection System or not ??
I have a small workshop (less than 30 square feet). I do not produce a much dust most of the time, but some days I do. I do not have any kind of dust control, and I don't want to pump the dust outside, especially in the winter as I will have to re-heat the shop all the time. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do? SHould I use a portable dust collector?
There are a number of good reasons to keep your workshop as dust free as possible, beginning with your health ... the most important one. As a rule many portable dust collectors are not great dust collectors, but anything is better than what you have right now. I suggest you check and see if there are any comparison charts for different dust collection systems. Normally the more you pay the better system you get. All I can tell you is you should get someing, and soon.

It really depends how much dust you are creating, but remember you cannot protect yourself too much from inhaling dust. It can be very hard on your lungs, especially long term (I know this from experience).
