Project Information

I'm using a shop vac as a dust collector, but I know that it is not enough, so I bought an exhaust fan in order to vent outside the finest dust particles that stay floating in the shop.
The box was made of melamine, nothing special but it had to be fit to the window and it was slightly complicated.
The exhaust fan is 1/20 horse power and 1261 CFM.

Thank you all for looking

Is that an enclosed motor? Where'd you find the fan? Thanks

With the climate you enjoy, you would not have to worry about losing heat from your shop, and a breeze
would probably feel good, so as long as the neighbors do not complain about the dust, you have a good
solution to the dust problem for now. Thank you for sharing.

I don't know if there's any problem with an open motor and dust. I'm looking for an enclosed motor fan for a basement lab I'm building, where I'll have explosive and/or toxic gases at times. Saw your post and thought it might be what I need.
