Use a furnace filter and a box fan - Attach a furnace filter with hook-and-loop tabs to the air intake of a box fan and hang the fan between the ceiling joists so you don't head your head while you work. Just switch it on and fine dust particles from SANDING and SAWING will be drawn into the filter by the vacuum created by the fan
A broom has no cords or hoses to catch and will reach every corner of your shop. Instead of tripping over the vacuum or dust collection hose, just connect Woodstock International’s floor sweep to your dust collection system and sweep the debris away. The floor sweep works best when used in conjunction with a gate — that way you can just open the gate when you’re sweeping and close it when you’re done.
Started with blower, air cleaner, filter box. I used 1/2" MDF for the case and the entire assembly is hung from the ceiling. I should have done this long ago. The shop is now completely clear of the fine dust that previously covered everything. - created via http://pinthemall.net
Cut narrow strips with a sliding jig. To make the jig, attach a 5-in.-long strip of wood, 1/16 in. narrower than the width of the desired rip, to the end of a 1x6 as shown. Basically you're creating a horizontal push stick. Add a handle near the end of the jig to give yourself better control as you run the jig through the saw.
