Glass in the house


Recommended Posts

Sealing the door to the basement and putting in an exhaust fan should work. Bulent Alieve built his fuselage in the living area of his apartment... but then he was single at the time :)


Seriously, you can build a LOT without hardly any dust. Bulkheads, fuselage sides, aluminum hardware etc. Its only when you start sanding the fiberglass and micro that dust becomes a big issue.


Also, you might consider using MGS epoxy so you dont stink ont the whole house with epoxy smell.


The sooner you start the sooner you'll be done.

I have two hobbies and dust is what I make. If you were asking about furniture building, I would say - DONT DO IT IN THE BASEMENT!!!! But Glass work ins't that bad, thats not to say you don't create dust, just not in the quantities that you do in woodworking, untill you start filling and sanding. Filling and sanding is left until the end and you can find other quarters for that operation.


Most of the dust in the building process is heavy enough to settly locally for vacuuming and sweeping, it's not the insidiouse kind that floats to every nook and cranney from floor to ceiling, like wood sanding dust, in the construction phase.
