    Dust control?

    I'm curious what everyone does for dust control in their work areas. My work area is in my basement which I find can get a bit dusty and grimy... I was thinking getting an air filter or two to help scrub the air.

    Does anyone use air filters or have other tips for combating dust?

    There is already a thread for this. But usually i just take a fat paint brush and dust mine off every once and a while. Here is the thread.

    Re: Dust control?

    Zaku, he's asking about another area concerning dust.

    I actually take a shop vac over my area after every build. After a good spray session, i also vacuum my booth and the filters, it helps cut down on dust in there.

    I got a cat about 6 months ago, so i am always running my Oreck XL filter and it's really helped keep cat hair and dust away from my area. I love it especially when i'm soldering or sanding resin.

    Oh ok my mistake. I was not paying enough attention. I like those micro fiber towels. Damn good for picking up dust.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I hadn't thought of using micro-fiber towels for cleaning, I'll have to pick some up.

    And I guess there is no substitute for a good vacuuming, so I'll just have to make that a habit...

    They really do do a good job. They pick up everything.
