As always I'm looking for advice.
Had a long time off now, health issues, and just trying to kick-start but with big problem -- Breathing! The slightest hint of dust and I'm in the funny stuff.
At the moment I have a Record RSDE 2A but its not enough, I need something more powerful - minimum of 'M' on the H+S ticket. I know its expensive but, just got to sort it. As well as 'Dust Control' for all machines - routers, table saw, mitre saw, band saw and the others I have to get a set of Hose and Tools for the machine to clear up the floor.
I know there are lots of these things out there but! has anyone got experience of a particular 'brand' or 'type' ?
Any advice would be helpful and I'd be very grateful.

If you have such problems, maybe it can be occurred by air dust too? I use air purifiers for dust removal at home, maybe it can also help you? There is a good review on few of them on jonsguide reviews.

I have a problem with dust too. I have ceiling mounted air cleaners (main one is a JET from Axminster). Quiet and effective at taking out airborne dust. I have a chip extractor which I have replaced the cloth bag filter with the drum type which sits on top. Filters out much finer particles and connects to my table saw, planer/thicknesser, bobbin sander etc. Finally I have a Festool CT 25 mobile extractor for all my hand held power tools, which is extremely effective. I hook the Festool up to a cyclone dust collector which saves on filter bags, as the course stuff goes in to a separate collector, leaving the Festool bag to collect the fine dust. All in all, approaching £1000 but worth it for the environment in the workshop. Good luck.
