Busting dust in a basement shop
Seal the exits
Even the best dust-collection system can't capture every speck of dust. To keep it from migrating to other parts of the house, plug any gaps where it could escape.
Start with the door that separates your shop from the rest of the house. Seal around the top and sides of the door with weatherstripping and install a sweep or threshold along the bottom. If you're installing a new door, choose an exterior-grade prehung door, photo right. It seals on all four edges.
