Thnx to Jerry for selling me on this deal from Grizzly a while back. I mean it too. Thnx, Jerry. I bought this lil fine piece of filter for me and my lungs. As you see, “out w/the old”, LOL, the ole box fan did the trick for quite some time. I’m sure this Air Filter from Grizzly will be a big help with the dust floaters in the shop. Work safe, Work healthy, and, stay healthy so you can work safely.
here’s the old:

here’s the new:

here’s what came in the box:

So far, I like it. It’s nice because of the 3 speeds, low, medium, and high. Also you can set it for different lengths of time. A

Definitely an upgrade. It should help quite a bit.

Looks just like mine. I like to set the timer for an hour after I finish for the day and let it continue to filter the air.

no better way to spend a tax refund then to invest in your lungs!

Nice purchase!

I love mine, by the look of the filter it’s doing a great job, and don’t you feel smart when you see this exact same filtration unit with the Jet labeling on it for $369.00. This dust collector is made in china and it’s sold by many different retailers for between $350.00 and $500.00

Jerry and Roger, Y’all should do a review after enough time to thoroughly check it out: is the shop noticibly cleaner, filters easy/cheap to change, etc…..... Just a thought. If you do this post the size of your shops please so we can compare with ours.

Roger, a person can’t have too many tools and this one is as important and the table or band saw.
I’m still on the 3 speed floor fan with a 5” x 24” square 5 micron filter adapted to it.

I need to do something like this. I am still using a fan to blow dust OUT! My shop measures 24×16 and this may be a future purchase. Thanks for the info.

A great addition to your shop Roger. I bought the same unit, same color under a different brand name (doesn’t come to mind just now). I still haven’t hung it up yet. I’ve been carving lately, so not much saw dust lately. I’m looking forward to trying it out. I have a stairway up to the loft above my shop and if I leave the heavy trap door open at the top of the stairs a lot of dust migrates up there, so I hope this unit will solve that problem.

Thnx everyone. Andy: yes, I am going to give it some time and monitor the filters for an update down the road. My shop is 22×29 with almost a 10’ ceiling.

Looks like I have to do some reading. I’m not sure what I am looking at. Is this an exhaust system?
