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.
-- If I can't fix it, it wern't broke in the first place!
