Well, as it turns out, inhaling weld fume and grinding dust is bad for your health. We always used to wonder if inhaling melted metal dust was bad for our health, but modern science has the answer. Downdraft welding tables allow for the welder to do welding without needing to move fume arms or operate safety equipment and avoid the breathing in melted metal and dust. The basic design principle is, welder’s want to weld, not operate safety equipment. It protects you from things such as weld fume fever and hexavalent chromium or hex chrome exposure.
Safety equipment is never a fun expense, but neither are medical bills in your late 50’s.
