The dust .get be so thick you can’t see your arm at the end of your hand. You will not fill your whole shop with that much dust. However, it still is i.portant to keep dust cleaned up. What can happen is a small pile can get kicked up near the ignition source, ignite and kick up a larger pile, which then ignites bigger…..etc.

Still not likely, but possible if you do not keep the shop relatively clean. More likely is that a pile of dust settles on the heater, gets dry as it beats up, then smoulders. Also a housekeeping issue.

I’ve got a 220v electric heater in my shop. It’s expensive to run, but no dust issues so far. I am thinking of going to one of those gas heaters, the indoor ventless ones.
