Dr. says NO dust

Doctor says NO dust which means no building, which leaves a shop full of
everything a builder should have. Need to sell to remove temptation! Price
will be 50% or less of current. If you need it,,,, snipped-for-privacy@aol.com
probably has it.

What he said. Look for either the paper ones that have an exhale valve or the better ones with replaceable cartridges. I have used the former on a daily basis working for the City of Burbank while weedwhipping traffic islands, alleys, dead parkways, you name it. They will even keep out the dust generated by blowing off high traffic underpasses with pigeon roosts, diesel soot and tire dust where you end up literally with black mud in your ears and coating every exposed inch of skin. I use em in my shop also. Check with the doc to see what he says about em. I transfered to the sewer dept because you stay cleaner...

Woodworking stores, especially those who cater to wood turners, often can hook you up with a really good dust respirator, and machines to help keep the ambient dust to a minimum.
Check out for one of their stores.

There are also a large range of industrial fresh air systems that will keep the dust out of your entire head area. These are used along with sealed overalls for bad dust areas and for spray painting a range of nasty paint type products.
Although you will look like a spaceman, or an SR71 pilot, you could probably come up with a suitable modelling project to match the style!
You could make a cheap one with an old style hair dryer blower, a length of 2" poly pipe from outside the room in the fresh air, a length of hair dryer flexy pipe, a whipper snipper perspex face shield and a bit of cloth and elastic to hold it around your head so it doesn't leak.....
Mind you, it probably wouldn't win a fancy dress prize! Hope this helps, Peter

WorkBench Magazine I picked up at Lowes while buying Hurricane supplies has an entire article on Dust collector systems. August issue with a big cyclone system on the cover. As much as we all like to tinker, the particle size is an issue in whatever filter system you use, so be careful of what you use as the filter and the micron size of the openings determine what actually gets thru. Ask you doctor what particle size and amount you are being restricted from, unfortunately I don't think there really is any way to eliminate ALL dust particles form our lives. Andy

I would first have to ask what the reason for the no dust orders? Then ask yourself, "Is my health and/or life worth the risk?"
If you decide it is, then explain to your doctor what you intend to do and ask his help. Your condition may not require extreme measures and then again, it may. Best to have his help to make sure you're properly protected. But be prepared should he respond with, "under no circumstances".

A few years ago, there was a very good study on what activities doctors would and would not let their patients do under different circumstances. Almost without fail, the activities that we restricted patients from were activities that we don't do or participate in. So as you ask your doctor the questions above, very good questions by the way, also ask if it is an activity that he or she does and knows about or just wants you to stay away from, just because of an impression and not a factual basis. But, also as stated above, when you ask a question, you do have to be prepared to hear the answer.
