Air filter

Drove out to Geneva today to pick up an air filtration unit for the new workshop. The painters have been complaining about sawdust in their art (oops).

The fellow I bought it from built it himself from scratch. Despite that, it is very well designed, probably better than most manufactured units. Twin filters (intake and outtake), fan and motor completely removable for service without pulling any wires or bolts, and it is pre-wired for low and high speeds with the flip of a switch.

Only negative I would say is the location of the switch (on the back of the unit). But as this thing is ultimately getting hung from the ceiling, I'll probably end up patching in a new longer power cord and put a secondary switch on the wall anyway.

at 2000 Cubic Feet per Minute, we'll see what the painters have to say now.

Congrats. Sounds like you will be helping to keep your lungs clean also.

Please post some pictures so we can get ideas to build our own.

I have to agree with Scott. Air cleaners and dust controllers are two tools that are essential to safe woodworking.

also think of the air cleaner as an investment in your better health.
