I had this 12’ squirrel cage blower fan so i made a OSB wood box and mounted the fan inside.
On one end i put in a 12 X 20 filter. Works quite well. I am thinking of putting in another filter on the bottom.
Mounted this contraption to the ceiling in my shop

I love these air cleaner setups. Now if I can only find a squirrel cage fan…

Good job.

Check one of your local HVAC places and see if they might have one that came out of system that was replaced. That’s where I got the three the I have.
