I posted this experiment which I did with my dust separator recently and thought maybe I can hook up a dust filter to my dust collector since I only use the 5” hose most of the time .
A simple wall mounted box made from scraps to fit the filter which I got from my daughter and it’s used but plenty good to use in the shop . Hooked it up to a 4” hose direct from the dust separator and sucks a lot of CFM and made a quick connect strap to hold it in place so if I want to use it on my drill press or mobile sanding station it’s quickly done .
The filter box is mounted high on the wall and behind my table saw where most of the dust is generated and it seems to do a good job and turns on with the dust collector switch which is located on my table saw .
This is in addition to the air filter I have mounted near the ceiling which actually does not work all that well and this being hooked to the dust collector has a lot of suction and will help clean the air more quickly .
