Want to improve your dust collector’s efficiency? Take a look at the filters! In this episode we talk about what kind of filters are best, and why- then we build a “manometer” to tell us when our filters need cleaning. (You can skip to the 8:00 mark for the manometer build details)

It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. So check it HERE!

Having investigated dust collection, cartridge filters and such, much of the info was a refresher course. However, the building of the manometer is new & a great idea!!!

Thanks for doin’ what you do!!!

I think I can handle this build; looks pretty simple, even for me. Go Tigers!

Have your say...
