I have only recently moved into a new house with an attached two-car garage. I am also starting to make a fair bit of dust working on projects in the garage.
Tools I am using include handsaws, a circular saw, drills, a 13" planer and a radial arm saw.
My current method is to work on a project then use a wet/dry utility vacuum to clean everything up afterwards.
What I would like to mitigate:
- A standing layer of dust on everything in the garage.
- A clogged up utility vacuum
- An unhealthy workspace
I have seen a couple recommendations online, such as a cyclone dust collector which I believe goes after the tool, before the vacuum. Also I have seen DIY air cleaners using box fans and furnace filters.
I do not wish to spend a ton of money, but at the same time I do want a good system for a hobbyist/prosumer that will prevent the above concerns.
