Ok my friends, yes it’s another Air Cleaner, however its a new project for me and it’s been in the works for quite a while, and it’s now finished. I believe it has cost me about $40.00 to build give or take. The motor is a 110v three speed 1/3hp from an old home furnace and was free from a friend, I bought the switch threaded rod, washers/nuts, the filters, and a 60min timer which I still need to install, and everything else I had on hand. In the last pic you can see how dirty the filter is, and it was only running for about 20 to 25 mins with out any cutting or any dust being intentionally kicked up. I set it up with two of the three speeds Hi & Lo, it’s not too loud and you can’t really tell which speed it’s on until the access door is opened. I also designed it so I could slid the motor in and out just Incase of repair. So far it works great, I called a buddy to help me hang it, and he loved it because he was just looking to buy one for about $430.00, and actually ordered one from me instead, awesome!! Thanks for looking, oh and sorry about the pictures, new phone

Looks like you did an excellent job of building your air cleaner.

Looks great. Gives me an idea of something to do with a couple of blowers I have laying around out of our old furnaces.

Have your say...
