Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Woodworkers often get in trouble with their families for messy sawdust. Worse, wood dust has been shown to be a grave health hazard, causing eye and skin irritation, allergic reactions, and a host of respiratory problems. Proper dust collection can prevent or minimize most of these problems. Peters shows the types of protective equipment and dust collectors available and provides instructions on designing a collection system. Plans to make fixtures for specific machines are given, as well as maintenance instructions. Every woodworking collection should include this title. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
