I have been collecting dust from various woods to use for a filler with epoxy. So far, I have been running it through a piece of screen material but that made the filler a bit coarse. Recently I collected a lot strictly from a sanding operation that was a lot finer and mixed much better with the epoxy so I started looking for a finer material to make finer dust off the wood lathe. The choice was 150 grit Abranet sand paper. Boy did that do the job. I’m sharing this with everyone in case someone out there wants to find a better sifter for dust.
The next use will be sifting crushed turquoise for yet another filler.
