Shop Projects #1: Air Filter

10-02-2017 01:15 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

One of the downsides to a small attic shop is the crazy amount of dust in the air. I have some windows I can open while it is nice out, but even that only has a limited effect. After browsing the internet I decided it was time to make an air cleaner. I did not want to make a major investment in a fan, and the typical box fan was just not powerful enough in my opinion. We use a Lasko Wind machine in the living room and bedroom and these fans are GREAT!! I happened to catch an end of the sea...

Out w/the Old, and In w/the New

04-03-2015 12:04 AM by Roger | 26 comments »

Thnx to Jerry for selling me on this deal from Grizzly a while back. I mean it too. Thnx, Jerry. I bought this lil fine piece of filter for me and my lungs. As you see, “out w/the old”, LOL, the ole box fan did the trick for quite some time. I’m sure this Air Filter from Grizzly will be a big help with the dust floaters in the shop. Work safe, Work healthy, and, stay healthy so you can work safely. here’s the old: here’s the new: here’s what came in t...

I made an air filter using a series of filters and then also a fan from an AC unit. Below are two pictures of it and more on how I made it. Here is more on how I made it.

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

03-11-2013 07:49 PM by chopnhack | 0 comments »

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....

02-26-2013 04:47 AM by DIYaholic | 12 comments »

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...

My Long Wait for a Workshop #5: Home Made Air Filter

04-26-2011 05:24 PM by JWags | 13 comments »

Hello again, Just finished my homemade shop air filter. I had to change my original plans, which were to hang it from the ceiling. That’s because I also wanted a washable filter, to keep down on the ongoing costs. So here was the final criteria: I needed a blower that would draw and push at least 800 CFm, a primary filter that would catch up to 5 microns, and a secondary filter that would catch 1 micron particles, and not be cost prohibitive. Plus – it had to be quiet. S...

Dust Collection #2: Finished Already

09-17-2010 04:56 AM by HokieMojo | 8 comments »

Sorry this component of my dust collection system didn’t get broken down into steps better, but I was juggling so many things at once (workshop and family related) that I couldn’t get good photos and keep up with the posts. Here is the dust collector that I built from a recycled AC blower unit and how I came up with the design. I had a perfect spot high on an empty wall. It would be out of the way, but central enough to get good air circulation. Here is my planned location. ...

Garage Re-Do #18: Super Sucker Completed

03-09-2009 05:24 PM by MyOldGarage | 0 comments »

Whew! Last night I put the finishing touches on the new filter project for the dust collector. The biggest challenge was the bag and getting that all together. I emptied the old bag and contents into a huge 55 gallon contractor style (2mil thickness) garbage bag. When I went to put the system back together I just grabbed that bag and put it back together. There was a metal band around the old top filter, so I used that on the plastic bag and tightened it up. I anxiously flipped th...

Garage Re-Do #16: Air Filter Arrived!

03-06-2009 04:24 PM by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

That’s a peek down the inside of the new Wynn Environmental filter - the 9E300BL one. I’m anxious to get some cutting done and get this puppy mounted on my Grizzly dust collector. Once I get it mounted and that, I’m going to move it over to a more permanent location and run one trunk of at least 6 inch pipe to the unit. The only problem with that is the PVC to “air pipe” sizing. It’s just frustrating to measure stuff and see the differences. I can...

Woodworking Knowledge #4: Creating a powered, positive pressure, filtered air-mask

04-30-2008 05:54 PM by flink | 5 comments »

Like many of you, I’ve looked at the Trend and Triton powered air masks. And like many of you, I decided to make do without one because they are fairly pricey. Well, today in my travels I found a link from a steampunk site (yes, my old hp laptop is going to become wood-clad and steam driven very soon) for a DIY powered mask. This is another Jake Von Slatt project. He used a car air filter, though I think I am going to use a cabin air filter since almost all of them are HEPA rated ...
