Hi, complete noobi to woodworking so sorry if I say some thing dumb or completely miss some thing. I am a Iron worker by trade.
What I need and background.
For right now I just have a 10 inch craftsman band saw that I use to rip down wood blanks to make razor scales and knife handles. I have the band saw on a base I made of plywood and smashed into a closet. I have other hand and cordless power tools that I use out on the side walk when the weather permits. The next power tool I would like looking to the future is a small lathe for making shaving brush handles. Nothing stays out it all has to be able to break down and go on a shelf some where or my wife gets angry. I used her dyson a few times with some duct tape around the hose to make a tight seal around the band saw dust port, she didn’t like that much either.
I would like to spend around $350 willing to increase that number if needed for a smaller or better filter. I have been looking and reading and honestly just about the time I think I know what I am looking at I get even more lost then I already was.
Is this a lost cause or is their some thing out their that will do the job, break down small, wont cost me 2 arms and a leg since my land lord already had dibs on those, and wont leave dust on my wife’s spinning bike?
