Teffilin dust and paint fumes

I have heard that working with dust from sanding batim smooth and fumes from teffilin paint can be cancerous is there a proper way to exhaust work room and prevent damage to ones health ?

  1. Sanding Batim ie leather dust is OK.

    The paint is dangerous. Use outside or in a well ventilated area, and try to get a face mask if you can

    1. Only thing I would add is to make sure you get a painting mask with a filter that keeps out fumes. A lot of masks are only rated for dust but you can get a painter's mask at any Home Depot in the US.

  2. Is it dangerous to store the paint in a close tin which is itself in a closed plastic container - in ones house?

    1. No. If it's sealed it's ok. I would obviously keep out of reach of children
