Every woodworker knows that dust is dangerous to your health. It poses a threat in any size shop, and professional guidance is required to manage it. Enter woodworking expert Sandor Nagyszalanczy, who covers all facets of dust control in this book and DVD. In the past, dust-control installation required complicated calculations, but now manufacturers offer systems that are economical and easier to install. The process is truly demystified by Nagyszalanczy, who covers comprehensive systems, as well as air filtration, portable systems, shop vacuums, task dust collection, and personal dust protection. This is required reading (and viewing) for all woodworkers who care about health and safety.
