Air cleaner finished. 20×20x1 air filters, 2 pre and 1 post. 20” Lasko box fan. Extended speed knob through top. Made with 5/8” MDO plywood. Works very well!

I’d be interested to see how this does. I really like how you extended the knob through the top.

Nicely done. I agree with Steve, the extended knob is a good idea.

Do you use the different fan speeds, or does one setting work better than the others?

I always turn it to high and leave it. Trick is before you start working in the shop just turn it on and let it run continually and about 20-30 minutes after you finish. It’s not an incredibly buff fan but it actually does a good job. I typically set it as close as I can to the tool I am using. Just periodically check your filters so they don’t plug up.

It does quite well for a $20 fan. For the knob I took a bushing like the one in the picture I included but mine had a slit cut through it long ways. I crimped the end a bit put it over the speed control rod from fan, put a couple drops of 2P10 down inside then grabbed a knob, put a screw in it that was a little smaller than the inside of the bushing, crimp bushing, 2P10 and push them together. Holds just fine.
