Homemade Dust Collector

This quick tip will help keep the dust down in your workshop.

Here's a simple trick to help keep your workshop clean and dust free. Placing this homemade dust collector behind your workpiece will help stop much of your dust before it becomes airborne. A standard furnace filter, fitted to the back of a box fan, will help keep your dust problems under control. You can hold it in place with large rubber bands, straps, or a permanent home made frame.
