When I moved into my current house, the owner left a rather large furnace blower fan that he had mounted to the ceiling in the garage. It comes in very handy when the weather gets warm or I want to move the air around.
I decided to build a box around the blower and attempt to get some of the dust out of the air. Even with my Delta 50-760 dust collector, some of the dust get airborne and I wanted to catch as much as I could.
Nothing fancy here. 1/2 inch particle board shell with a 1×2 pine frame on the inside. 36” long and 15” wide, 21” tall. The tricky part was enclosing the current hanger system so I didn’t have to take the blower down to put the case on. A couple notches on the top panel did the trick. A helping hand from my wife while I put the screws in the top panel and tadaaaa!!! The picture frame clips on the front and back allow me to put a filter in both places but gives me easy access to the inside or to change the filters themselves.
Not perfect, a little rough, but I can already see some of the dust being caught on the inside of the filter. Yeeeaaaaahhhh! Now, back to the fun stuff!!!
