Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Tired of wood dust coating everything in your garage or workshop? A good dust-control system can eliminate the mess. This small, concise book illustrates several options for the home woodworking shop, from the best use of your shop vac to tool-specific systems and shop-wide air filtration. Great illustrations show how each system works, along with simple installation instructions and clever tips. Highly recommended for any woodworking collection.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Well, in this case the new book spurred our item on static electricity which of course prompted our story on spontaneous combustion. In this issue of ShortCuts Book Review, the authors have nailed the subject of dust control perfectly.

Most of us woodworkers know of the dangers of sawdust, the toxicity, the static dangers, the mess etcetera. The books' editors have listed an excellent selection of shop vacuums describing the pros and cons of each. A necessary blast gate for portable vacuums is described and machines with tool activated switches are featured as well.

Beefing up your shop vacuum and cutting down on the noise are chapters that are a must-read. Determining the size of a built-in dust collection system for your particular shop could be a big money saver along with the chapter on installation tips. This is an excellent book and should be consulted before even considering some sort of dust collection gear.
