As in every other shop in the world, dust is an issue in mine. I have a few wood species allergies so I’m all about keeping the air clean. In conjunction with wearing a respirator, I made the AFS to keep the air clean and keep dust off my coffee cup lid. I live in the Atlanta area and even used the squirrel cage blowers are ridiculously expensive so I delayed this project indefinitely until I could find a blower I wanted to pay for…. Several months past and I go visit my Aunt who had a 3/4hp blower in her backyard. So me being her favorite nephew and all she donated it to me. Fast forward a couple weeks and this beast was awakened. I work out of a one car garage so this unit is a complete overkill, but I’m of the mindset that overkill is underrated. On the maiden voyage I literally blew every bit of dust I could find into the air until I could barely see the back wall. Literally 2 minutes later the air was so crystal clear. I’ll chalk this one up in the win column. Wired for 3 speeds but I usually leave it on low while I’m working but crank it up to high at the end of the day to leave everything relatively dust free.
Thanks for looking
