I know this has been discussed ad nauseum, but maybe not from this wrinkle. I have narrowed my dust collection choices to two options. The bulk of my woodworking is done on the deck of my apartment courtesy of my ex and the local judicial district. I primarily need to collect bandsaw dust, router table shavings, lathe shavings, and shavings from hand tools. Noise is also a consideration as I am pushing the envelope with Waylon Jennings music, and am not prepared to give that up.

The two options:
1) A delta 50-820 blower on top of a thein baffel vented into a filter bag.
2) A strong shop vac, (200 cfm, 60 in static) attached to a seperator.

I have researched the health question, spoken with a physician and an environmental expert. I’m not convinced that there is any risk beyond the capability of a high quality respirator mask, and if I were to develope health problems, my ex would simply have the court order me back to health to continue my support of her oppulence.

Both are about the same cost, given that the blower is used and the vac has shipping damage.

Ready, Set, Post!
