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.

Get air purifiers for dust removal, as many as you consider needed to cover all the areas in your home, a really hefty one for your workshop, and you're done. These devices are specially manufactured to collect dust from the air so that your allergy won't trigger anymore and you can breathe as you did your entire life. And btw, it's a more common issue than you'd think.

Dave is right, dust air purifiers are specially tailored to do the job. Just make sure the one you get suits the size of the room, check the specs to see which is OK for you. A few options you can find and compare here **LINK**, maybe it helps. I recommend you put an accent on HEPA filtration as even the smallest-size particles are removed from the air with this technology. Other than that. you should take noise into consideration too as a loud purifier can really be annoying if you use it in your workspace.
