I like to build with barn boards and reclaimed wood so I spend a lot of time sanding and wire brushing the dust and debris off of the boards before I begin a new project. My shop was always covered in dust and I found I was breathing a lot in (really dislike trying to work with a dust mask on). My father-in-law had an old furnace fan he donated to the project and the end result is in the pictures. There are two furnace filters on each end that filter the air before it is brought into the fan and pushed out the front of the unit. I have since put the unit on castors and put a grill cover on the front that directs the air to the ceiling. That will help circulate the warm air in the winter. The unit is working well and the dirt and dust collected on the outside filter suggests it has been a success.
