This uses 2 filters, a cheap 20×25 outside and a good 16×20 inside. I recycled as much as I can. Last year I bought 4 of these furnace blowers off of craigslist for $30. I have something similar hanging in the garage, pics in my workshop. I’m using a 40 foot cord to power this, the excess is inside. I’ll bring home my amp clamp from work and see what it’s pulling, but I won’t be using all three at the same time.This is about 2 steps from the lathe,it should do the job.I had to use 1/2” bolts to level the box, it’s near a floor drain.The box is 24” x 24” x28”, not counting the casters.The top is 2×4’s. The biggest cost in this is the casters and the filters.The wolverine setup is new to me, but I’m expecting a short learning curve, I like it. The water wheel and the drawer full of jigs isn’t attached, but the 8” grinder is.If this works as good as the one in the garage, I’ll be satisfied. I probably could have used lighter weight materials, but this is real solid.I’ve got an idea to make a downdraft table out of the same kinda setup, but that will have to wait.Thanks for checking it out.
