I haven't done this yet, but I'm planning to once I get the money and
time -- I was thinking of installing an air to air exchanger in the
woodshop to complment the dust collection. The only mod I would make
is to have a portion of the incoming air vent to into a neighbouring
room -- this would create negative air pressure in the room, and
prevent any dust from escaping into the house whatsoever. Also, it
would be very useful for paint fumes, etc.
I'd let you know how well it works, but the car broke down, and all my
money dissappeared :crybaby:
Outside of this idea, so long as you have a good dust collection
system (make sure you visit
http://billpentz.com//woodworking/cyclone/index.cfm for information
on this), you shouldn't have any noticable problems. (NOTE: a
shop-vac is not sufficient as it does not filter out the fine dust
particles that you can't see, and this can be a health hazard).
