I use my air compressor to blow it all out. Place filter in a dowel, secure it well so that you can walk around it with the air hose. Eye protection, hat, and plan to shower after putting your tools away. It also helps to aim the resulting dust storm toward a mean neighbor's yard. ;) Just kidding, folks.

As far as the floor mat goes, you could also use double-sided carpet tape if you don't want to see the duct tape around the edges.

Cheap yoga mats (about $5 at the discount stores) also make excellent tool drawer liners. With a choice of colors, you can coordinate it with the toolbox!

The ideas are interesting.

I would like to see the tool drawer after a month. The liner is nice if you can only have a few tools to a drawer.

I have tried the filter in the bag, My filter is evidently more impacted with the sawdust as it does not work for me. I have also tried a small bucket with a hole big enough for the vacuum hose which just fills the new filter. I have put pantyhose over the filter which works nice but there is a noticeable loss of suction power.
