Nice, that’s encouraging to hear. Maybe I could occasionally finish in the basement shop without getting kicked out of the house. I have the Jet air cleaner also, and a homemade one that probably moves as much air. One near the ceiling, one on the floor, so I suppose the more effective one would depend on whether the gases I’m trying to filter out are heavier or lighter than air.

I’ve search on Amazon before for active carbon filter material. Some seem reasonable cost, although require you to cut it to size:

So, Four years ago I purchased a few 12×24 x 1 activated charcoal filters from Grainger, part# 2JUT6 ($14.59 each). These fit perfectly in my Jet 1,000 cfm air filtration system and they worked quite nicely. No detectable organic vapors escaped my shop. Because they come sealed in plastic shelf life is quite long. I’m on my last filter and it still works okay. Unfortunately, when I went on the Grainger site to reorder, they had been discontinued.
