Everyone agrees that wood dust is a danger, but not everyone can afford the best solution, a cyclone dust collector with state-of-the-art filtration. So what do you do for more budget-friendly protection? Add a better filter and a separator or internal baffle to your single-stage collector. Better filters will filter the finest dust, keeping your airways cleaner, and a separator or baffle will trap the majority of dust before it reaches the filter, so you won't have to stop and unclog it as often.
