Unfortunately that last 1% that isn t captured is composed of the smallest, most dangerous (from a health standpoint) dust particles, some kind of filter would be better than none.

I think there is some confusion here so let me try this again.

The Super Dust Deputy claims that of the saw dust and chips collected, 99% are captured and sent to the barrel.
The one percent that is not captured, exits out of the blower out outside through a dryer vent. (or something similar)

IF I was returning this air back into the shop then yes, that 1% of fine dust would indeed be an issue that would require a filter. But, since I am not returning that air back into the shop, but to the outside, it will not be an issue.

Now with all of that said, there is still the issue of the dust that the collector does not gather at the machines.
This will be an issue, as it is in any shop, that will require an air cleaner and dust masks when needed.

This is why I have installed an air cleaner in the ceiling where, I believe, most of the airborne dust will be floating around.

I hope this makes it a little clearer. No pun intended. :)

Thank you for your comments.
