I’ve been wanting to build a air filter for my shop for quite some time now. Recently I found a working furnace fan and motor at a junk shop for $20. I looked around online for ideas and I liked Jay Bates’ design. I liked his cart idea so you could wheel it to a tool. I had all the wood I needed laying around the shop, all I had to buy was the filters and the switch. I used a 12 hour countdown switch, that way I can switch it on and let it run itself. Hopefully this will help keep the fine dust off of everything.

very nice build even if it is upside down, some people on here can turn it rightside up, I don’t know how they do that, but I am sure they will. I understand from one post that you have to orient a cell phone properly, did you take the picture with a cell phone. I use paint program to get my vertical pictures to stay vertical, reduce the size. Anyway once I turned the computer upside down I see you have a delta lathe same as one that I have. It was in the school where I taught in 1970, I was able to buy it when I retired. Funny thing when I went pack to look at the picture it was right side up. I must be loosing it.

Yes, its a great little lathe, it was my fathers. He was a woodshop teacher as well. Ive had fun getting it up and running again and learning how to turn.
