Microclene Air Filters: Simple, Effective, Essential Dust Control

The ToolPost ( has become more than just a supplier of woodturning tools, it is now a one-stop-shop for everything surrounding the craft of woodturning and carving, such as accessories, books, DVDs and health and safety equipment. Dust control is an important part of running a safe and environmentally healthy workshop, and as such The ToolPost stocks a number of dust control solutions, including Microclene air filters.

Dust extraction is a vital step in the fight for respiratory protection in the workshop as the inhalation of dust is one of the occupational hazards of being a woodturner or carver. Unfortunately, even the very best dust extraction equipment such as the CamVac range of extractors cannot ensure complete elimination of ambient dust. When it comes to the removal of residual dust particles in the air, there is a simple, low-cost and yet highly effective solution, however: Microclene Air Filters.

Award-winning Microclene Air Filters have been proven to effectively filter out harmful airborne ambient dust and are available in a wide range of models of varying sizes, depending on the particular needs of your workshop. For instance, if you own a small workshop you may find the smaller bench-mountable MC100 filter sufficient for your needs, while more substantial filters which can be mounted on the wall or ceiling such as the MC670 and MC780 units are more appropriate for larger workshops. The overhead-mounted MC3000, meanwhile, has four motors and is capable of clearing the air of the most spacious and productive of workshops. All of the Microclene Air Filters are just as quiet as they are effective, and represent one of the cheapest methods of dust control on the market.

As well as being one of the UK's leading stockists of woodturning tools, The ToolPost is also a hub of information, both through the workshops, demonstrations and Open Houses held at the Didcot shop and via the information available at the website at Take a look at the Health & Safety section of the website to find out more Microclene, dust extraction in general and wider issues surrounding safety in the workshop.
