Ok, so we have extracted the worst of the dust, but there are still loads of little bits hanging in the air, and it's YOUR lungs which filter this stuff out.

Time for the next phase of the project, the microclene, air scrubber thing
I think this is their website is Dead link removed by Admin
you can buy them on-line from all over.

this little box is designed to filter out the last little bits of dust from the air, it does this by "exchanging" your workshop air 10 times per hour, so you need to size the box for the volume of your workshop.

This is my installation (not got around to wiring it in yet, it's just on a plug / socket )

Pro's
It works, as the filters are grubby, and the air appears clearer, although this might be just how it appears! I have not measured it

Con's
Noise - the thing itself is not that bad, but it draws in so much volume of air the end result is quite noisy - more than the camvac (see other review)

Other
you can get an attachment to filter out other stuff such as that generated by painting or pyrography

open a window/door at opposite ends and change the air every few mins with the aid off a fan if necessary :huray:

i am not really sure what use a fine filter is every time you turn a machine on you fill the air with fine dust
the protection has to be between the air and your lungs
if you leave the air still for 10 mins most the dust will settle anyway :dunno:
