I bought a squirrel cage blower for $30 and watched a youtube video on how to make this contraption. Here is the final project.
The box is made of MDF and plywood. I bought a timer that goes up 8 hours and shuts off (1,2,4,8 hr increments) from Amazon. The wiring wasn’t quite pretty but it does the job for my shop. I also have a two-way toggle to select low or high on the blower. I’ve never used the high setting.
There are two filters (20×20x1): a cheap one to replace every so often and a more expensive to blow out a few times before replacing. Basically, I picked a size filter and built the box to fit.
The last pictures shows a comparison of a clean filter and a filter after sanding for an hour or so.
Thanks for looking.
