and around doors.

Play peekaboo with the gaps

To find small leaks where dust can escape, turn on the lights in the rooms on the other side of the walls and ceiling, cover any windows in the shop (or do this test at night), and then turn off the shop lights. Give your eyes a minute to adjust to the dark, then look for light showing around doors; above and below walls; in corners; and around pipes, wires, and ducts, photo right Move to different spots in the shop, look around again and make note of the areas where you see light.

There are risks with using an air gun to remove dust from yourself, possibly blowing something into your skin, or worse into your eye, potentially with some force. Use a vacuum instead.
