Well, here’s my version of the shop built air exchanger. I used scraps I wood found at the local cabinet shop: Oak veneered MDF and walnut. I found a blower from a clothes dryer at the local appliance shop for free, a scrapped emergency stop, and I used an old extension cord for the power cord. The only things I purchased were the filters, some caulk for sealing the joints, and the air diffuser for the outlet. If you look through the diffuser you can see that I lined the air outlet with pink foam insulation – it helps to lessen the noise of the air rushing out. It’s really quiet.
It’s also small – 16×20x24”. So it’s easy to move around. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, so I move it to where I’m sanding something – it really sucks!
The blower is about 350 CFM, so it takes about 6 minutes to change all the air in my small shop.
