I hesitated posting this because the blower motor is so. . . puny. But then I felt inspired by the fact of how well it worked for my small garage. Also, thought this could be a champion on using what you have. I got the blower brand new through a friend. The box itself was built to match the filters that I used.
I built the box so that there are two filters up front and one in back. The box is made of ½” Birch and I used scrap pine and cherry left overs to build in the filter holders.
The box took a weekend and after I build it I blew around the dust in the garage and turn it on to see – in five minutes the air was noticeably cleaner and in fifteen minutes I couldn’t see any dust in the air.
This doesn’t replace good dust collection and the need of wearing a mask, but it helps (really the goal was to reduce dust into the house while I work in the garage – mission accomplished)
