Sorry to hear about your condition, and I hope that your experience will encourage others to think seriously about dust control. A little know fact is that our lungs have about 4 acres of surface area, and that anything toxic breathed in goes into the blood stream “lightning fast”.

I’ve just purchased a 1 micron polyester bag for my DC3300 dust collector, and have purchased a Fein Turbo vacuum that connects to my orbital sander. This does a fantastic job of sucking up virtually all of the sanding dust. In my “Workshop in the Woods” in the Upper Peninsula, I have also added a ceiling mounted air filter.
