So, everything has gone pretty well so far and just getting used to my tools and their operation once again.
Fine dust has been a recent problem, maybe because I am working is a much smaller shop now, or maybe I didn’t notice it as much before, but I did get a better half mask made by Ellipse that is a big help while the tools are running but its afterwards that the fine stuff is still suspended in the garage for a while.
I am in the middle of building a small wine rack and when routing and sanding the fine dust that the DC doesn’t get needed to be addressed.
Researched air filtration units and JDS and Jet seemed to both have good and affordable units for a shop my size, 400sq. ft.
I ordered the Jet 1000AFS unit and hung it from the ceiling today. Hated to take the day off from working on the wine rack but knew that since the unit arrived yesterday that I ought to get it up and running before going back to routing and sanding.
Took awhile to walk it up the chains, but was a really rainy day and figured that a 58lb. unit couldn’t be too much trouble to handle for the install. I have a 10ft. ceiling in the garage so I hung it just a little over 7ft. from the floor.
I think that I will really appreciate having this machine as running it on low produced a nice circular air flow in the shop with not much noise. Running it on medium, it does get a little louder and produces quite a noticeable flow. High speed, yeah it noiser for sure and really puts out a lot of air in that mode. I’m thinking at this point that low or medium are going to work but have to wait and see.
