I went and looked at the Delta Air cleaner today and it was in really nice condition, very clean and sounded great.  I was able to pick it up for $60.  I am going to replace both the inner and outer filters. Hopefully I will get it hung up in the next couple days while I am waiting for the inner filter to come in.

Do some reading before you hang it where maintaining it will be more of a project. My Respiratory Doc is also a woodworker, and he’s talked me into keeping both of mine much closer to head high. His thought is dust left alone will settle to the ground once the air calms, it doesn’t rise up, unless lifted by a running fan, or air you make move around. Keep the collector where that same dust is going to do you harm, you breath it in, hint hint.

Also to change, or clean a filter just grab it and take it out, and do it. Hanging, involves a ladder, oh yeah, ahhhh, I’ll get you later. Thinking about cleaning it isn’t as effective as actually cleaning it.

Since I have moved mine to head height, on top of tools, or sitting up on counters, or benches. I can say I see a lot less floaters, and when I clean them, I’ve trapped more in a shorter time it seems. Where are they?? Near a planer, or jointer not much good, near a router, or where you sand BINGO.
