Sanding can create a lot of dust, making a big mess in your home or shop.
To reduce airborne dust when sanding, tape a standard HVAC air filter to the intake side of a portable box fan.
Turn the fan on and position it near where you’re sanding with the filter facing the sander.
The filter will trap much of the sanding dust, making clean up a breeze.
