You will eventually set off that smoke detector.
It is designed to pick up particles in the air.
What you need is a HEAT detector. It detects high HEAT. Chances are your local Fire code calls for a heat detector in your environment.
You can always go to your local jurisdiction and as for the Fire Marshall’s office. They can tell you exactly what you need.
Fire extinguishers are also a necessity.
It’s good that you are thinking about this, as most people don’t.
Good luck, and enjoy that shop!
