Project Information

Well, it works great I have only used it a few times within a few days so far, at 20 mins at a time in about 4hrs give or take. In the first pic the filters are in older of the way they work, I can't believe how much dust they have captured and that's with out me doing any cutting or creating any dust, the unit it's self stirred up the loose dust in the shop and filtered it on its own. So I think I will be looking into getting and using a washable pre filter for the first one and disposable for the other two. The second pic is just a look inside the unit.

That's a good idea because that first filter gets the brunt of it!!

Will do norm, woodbutcher I had my motor for about three years before I built my unit, I never really knew how much dust was in the air until I built it, I mean I would see the dust in the air at times and would even open up some windows and doors and some times I would wear a mask or not, but in he winter I can't open doors or windows and after seeing what the unit caught I will be wearing a mask all the time if you or any other LJ would like any help or advice with building your own Shop Air Cleaner I would be more than happy to help. After all I have received so much help from the LJ family that I actually can't wait to help someone myself.

It sure is Charles, I should have made time to build it sooner than I have, I haven't really given it a run for its money yet but I think it is my most favourite tool in my shop, that because I made it, I'm so proud of it and myself. I still need to tidy up the wiring on the inside and wire in a timer and she'll be finished.

My first order of business is where do I put the thing! I have worked all year planning out and moving stuff around to maybe, maybe get a 16×42 lathe in the only open corner of the shop. Oh and where do I put the bandsaw currently occupying the space???

LOL
