I am looking at setting up my shop in the basement. Its not a big room maybe 10×15. I have a dust deputy hooked up to a small shop vac and it does an ok job. I need to get better fitting hoses and dust ports on the tools but that’s a different post.
My wife really want to make sure zero dust leaves my area. There is no HVAC return in the room which I believe would be the main source of spreading dust throughout the house. The doors would need some weather stripping but that’s easy.
My proposed solution is a HF dust collector with the normal mods you see on youtube to improve it. Then a old HVAC blower that would filter the air. Probably run 2-3 filters in it. That seems to be the way most people do it. My wife isn’t convinced that is going to do the job :)
I have some family that do HVAC and they said I could run an EVR system but I am not sure about pulling in the humidity into a room with tools like my table saw. Plus its such a small room.
What do most people do with basement woodworking shops? Is the HF worth the money since I have a dusty deputy? The table saw is the biggest dust producer that I have currently. I have a thickness planner but That seems to produce small shavings not dust. Sanding is the only other thing I can think of that produces dust.
