I recently had a health scare about my lungs – everything is ok now, but it reminded me again why respirators, vacuums, dust collectors, and air cleaners are so important.

I don’t see enough of this type of information on YouTube to educate woodworkers, so I invested hours of time making a video that I hope will help fellow woodworkers be more aware and invest in protecting their health. If you find it useful, please share it… I feel it’s an important message for all.

Thanks for the VERY important video lesson.
Glad you are okay. I think your video will help others stay okay too.

Always a good topic but I would NEVER use a dust collector with the cloth bag. To minimize small dust you need a good canister filter.

Have your say...
