HI, I just posted about my drum&disk sander I made and now about my homemade squirrel cage dust syatom I made.
I got a smaller blower out a furnace [traded for it] and had some bigger down spout from commerical building was in dumpster too, I have read that these have no suction? Heck I built this put a board on it turned it on and could NOT pull it off, WOW it has suction. As you can see I mounted it above my wood lathe and ran down spout to my sanders and a 4inch duct to my lathe, I ran a 8inch to the outside, I dont want to collect the dust just get it out of the garage, [I may get a Y and two flappers so can run on low with filter for light dust and keep heat in shop will work good also] So I have 4 outlets that are 4inch and run the blower on high [it has 4 speeds I wired it for] and I cover the blower inlet with a board for this and when running the drum sander it gets All the dust, I cant believe how good it works. When I am spray painting I open the side up [take board off] and put a grill and fiberglass on it [I make filters from dumpster fiberglass I got] for a filter it works great for this too, collects all spray paint, my garage is only 24×24 but it works great. I open the little cat door for when I am using it to run drum sander and when painting I open small window on other side garage to get makeup air, if dont sucks my wood stove smoke back in.l
It has low, low med,high med. and high for speeds and runs on 110, Hope this can help someone and can answer any thing you may want to know, Thanks
