I looked at your shop and it appears that you have done a good job of collecting dust at the source. If you vent the dust outside, are you creating a dust problem in an area which could cause you or others problems. The dust will probably coat everything in the area and if people walk through it will kick up a cloud of dust. Also, the wind could carry the dust everywhere.

The Clearvue cyclone has filters that are 99.999% efficient at 0.5 microns which is very good. It is a nice setup but takes up some space and is not cheap.

Do you collect dust at the ROS. I would think that a sander probably produces more small dust particles than any other tool and collecting dust at the sander would be important.

I collect dust the dust at my ROS sanders and it helps a lot. I have a DeWalt sander and a Festool sander and connect both to a HEPA vacuum.

Another question would be which filter are you using in your 3M respirator. If you are concerned with the dust, you should be using a N100 or P100 rated filter when sanding. These are rated at getting 99.7% of dust particles while the 95 only gets 95%.
