work shop air filter.

09-13-2015 07:42 AM by fatman51 | 5 comments »

A couple of years ago I was at a popular woodworking store with my brother who was looking for an air filtration unit for his woodshop. They had one on sale for $150.00 so he bought it. We took it back to his shop and mounted it near the ceiling. It was pretty cool. We made some dust and it seemed to do a good job of filtering the air in his 16×32 building. I decided that I wanted one too, only I do things just a little bit different than my brother. On the way back to my shop, I...

Shop Air Cleaner #2: Almost Done

12-15-2013 03:39 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

I painted the whole thing bright yellow. If I knock my head on it, its my own fault. I glued and nailed strips (1” wide) on all four-sides to create tracks for the filters. There are two sets, the first is for a cheap filter and the second is for a higher quality filter. A quick 5/8” hole in the ceiling allowed for the 12 gauge extension cord to enter the box. I spliced the cables and attached the neutral wire inside the box and put the ground and line wires through the gang...

Shop Air Cleaner #1: Start of the Build

12-12-2013 03:47 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 2 comments »

Air intake for air cleaner. I used half-lap joints to build the frame (20.75”x20.75”) All the sides are cut, as well as the rabbets and dados according to the plans I drew. (Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4) The motor was put inside to take a few measurements for where to cut the air outflow. It is upside down in the picture, however. I mounted the squirrel motor to the inside wall with 1.5” wide pieces of 3/4” plywood. Some of the screws were drilled through t...

In Ceiling Air Cleaner #2: Completed

07-14-2013 04:13 AM by chopnhack | 0 comments »

Sorry for not posting sooner, but the project was completed back in February and life got busy… Suffice to say, I haven’t had much time for testing the air cleaner’s capabilities, but I did check out the airflow and the speeds are right where they need to be. I hope that this proves to be a useful tool for keeping the air clean when I mill wood. Here are some pics showing some of the components of the system. The first pic is of a simple pan box that will have a 10R...

In Ceiling Air Cleaner #1: An air cleaner that you won't walk into...

Well, it all started out with a trip to buy an air cleaner off of craig’s list some time ago. I saw a used Jet AFS-1000B for sale for about $150. After checking out the spec’s, I thought, gee, this would work great, 30×24x12, that’s not too big, I can find a place for it…. Drove about 1.5 hours round trip to discover that hey 30×24x12 is actually too BIG! I imagined myself hanging this thing near the step down that I have entering my garage and knocking mysel...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #21: If At First You Don't Succeed....

In a previous blog entry, I started to document the building of my ambient air cleaner. I didn’t do a blog on it’s completion and the WW gods spited me for it….. I initially installed 2 pre-filters (intake side) and a third MERV 12 filter on the exhaust side. After building the air cleaner, I learned that this arrangement is not recommended. I found out why! It seams that the filter, placed after the squirrel cage blower, puts back pressure on the fan and causes the motor...

Shop Clean Up Tip #2: dust collection

05-09-2012 01:40 PM by woodklutz | 5 comments »

I have found an easy and very effective way to keep my rigid shopvac filter clean. I had some left over Orek filter bags so I cut them seven inches from the top and slipped them over the pleated filter, tucking in the tops of thebag to keep dust from leaking out. Well after three weeks the filter is 90% dust free, all I do is tap the bag and the dust fall off easily.I do not remove the bag. Unlike panty hose that does not do a good job the filter bag does its job. The Orek bags are lined and...
