Dust is an annoying byproduct of sanding, whether from wood, metal, plastics, etc. This fine, powdery dust can also have negative effects on your health and work environment, as well as your equipment.
Allowing dust to accumulate on your equipment can cause defects, as you could be sanding the dust particles into your surface, rather than sanding the work surface itself. If dust is left on the surface when applying stains or other similar products, these defects will be visible in the finish. As a result, you’ll end up spending more time sanding your pieces.
This accumulation of dust can pose a potentially hazardous condition — combustible dust — generated from products such as wood, metals and plastics.
