Hello,
I recently bought a used Jet AFS-400 Air Filtration Unit for $70.00 on craigslist. The outer filter was in bad shape so i bought a new one and the manual says the inner filter is washable. I was wondering if any of you have washed the inner filter and the procedure you used. Also, any tips on location in shop and direction to point the air flow from the machine. All my tools are protable except my Unisaw.
Thanks

I have mine mounted on the ceiling behind my table saw where the out feed table would be, but a lot would depend on your shop size and layout. I would place it in the proximity of your largest dust producer. I wouldn't point the exhaust towards any door leading into the house. I also have the intake where it will suck in warm air from the heater and it helps distribute warm air to the farthest point in my shop. This was by accident and not design but it is effective. I can't tell you about the filter cleaning since mine is shop made. Contact Jet and I'm sure they could help you. I would think there is info online. Good luck.

I have an aircleaner that I made. It is a Patton fan that blows like nobodys business. I built a carcase that holds it and a HEPA filter behind it. I can wheel it wherever I need it. Most often I keep the filter side facing the dust source, which is usually the dust collector. It fits nicely under the right side of my tablesaw.
