...But enough about me..

Seriously.. I have dug my scroll saw out from under the bench to cut some stencil letters out for my 3d pantograph. I am cutting them from 12mm mdf. The saw isn't the world's best, but if I take care can get quite decent results with it. However, my problem is that the little puffer to clear dust away dusn't work very well, so I find I am having to blow dust away (with my mouth) all the while I am cutting. Obviously this isn't ideal, as I am breathing the mdf dust all the while. Does anybody have any ideas what else I could use to perform this task so I can save my lungs?

A paint brush does this job very well, you have to take one hand off the work to use it but I dont find that a problem.

To be honest, it's a bit of a struggle holding the workpiece down / still enough with two hands, I don't fancy my chances with one.

A vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool taped so it is just behind the
blade and just above the work piece works.
