For the past few years, manufacturers have been developing and unveiling a wide range of dust-mitigation products. Tools, attachments, and vacuums are available in corded and battery-operated versions. There are add-on attachments for existing tools as well as purpose-built tools, such as hammer drills with hollow bits that extract the dust from a hole as its being drilled. If you haven’t already been doing so and are going to use Table 1, you might want to start budgeting for them. Here are a few.
