I woodwork out of my garage (20ft x 23) which my wife parks our van in. I’m told I’m to build an open “mud room” area in the garage (bench, cubby holes to hang our coats, put shoes, a place for hats/mittens, etc). There is not enough space to close in the mud room area. I’ve been given notice that once the project is finished there will be no more cutting wood in the garage…as the dust will cover our stuff. Right now my only dust collection is a push broom and a small shop vac. I can cut outside for about 3 months before it gets cold again. I’d like to continue to cut wood in the garage year round. I’m thinking some dust collection is needed.
My questions is if I buy a dust collection system to collect dust at the tools and a unit to filter the garage air is it realistic to think I will be able to continue to cut wood in the garage (or would there be a noticeable layer of dust settling on our coats and shoes?)
This is what I looked at so far.
main tools are: Table saw, mitre saw, band saw, drill press, and
