I'm thinking about selling my wood lathe, (to make room for yet another piece of equipment). This question is not about that, but about doing my occasional wood turning on my metal lathe, a Maximat Super 11. My concern is the wood dust, especially from hard abrasive woods. My shop is my garage and when I do woodworking, I keep my metal lathe covered. Should I worry about the wood dust and fibers covering my lathe, am I being too cautious? Has anyone done this and seen ill effects down the road? Other then a good vacuuming and cleaning when I'm done, is there anything else to worry about.
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
