    Greetings.
    Was wondering what is the attitude toward MDF and possible / perceived health risks associated with its use, the fine dusts produced etc.
    Thanks.

    From what I hear - it is nasty stuff. Precautions such as a 1 micron dust collector or a mask if the DC if not feasible are definately recommended.

    The EXACT health risks are something I do not know (or want to experience).

      I handle it the same as PT lumber. Wear a good dust mask when cutting or sanding it. I only use it for building jigs and shop use items. I would never think of using it for furniture.

        I don't use MDF but when the dust gets bad during my 3 tool woodworking projects i usually look like this. Having a minor case of asthma i don't need it to get worse. Anytime i have to go into an attic of crawlspace i also wear this filter.
