(When I was a kid, my best friend's father had a shop in his basement, and one time I went down there and he was sandblasting something. He had rigged up a fishtank with holes in the sides and rubber gloves stuck in them to hold the item being worked. I have no recollection of what he was making, but I remember the tank. I always kind of wanted one...)
- one plastic box with attached lid, available at houseware stores
- one pair long rubber gloves
- some duct tape
Step 1: Arm Holes
The box is now usable; dust won't fly directly into your face now. But it will still come out of the armholes, and your hands will still be all covered in it. An improvement can be made!
Step 2: Attach Gloves
Step 3: Cord Hole and Another Version
Check out the last pic for the Super Size box my boyfriend made. He did not add gloves but attempted to block the arm holes with fabric. It didn't work very well and I'm encouraging him to add gloves for the sake of our lungs.
NOTE: it is just barely possible, if you're working with something like wood that's flammable, and using an electric tool, that a very high concentration of dust might possibly explode. So Be Careful.
