Here is my entry in the nothing new but the glue Challenge, an air filter. I have had the pallet for about 9 months ( it came to me as a bonus, under my new lathe), and a friend gave me the squirrel cage fan about 2 months ago. This challenge was just what I needed to get off my butt and put this together. There were some challenges though, the bottle of glue that is in the picture with the raw materials, was harmed. While I was taking the nails and the staples out of the pallet, it rolled down the driveway and across the street, where a car happended to park on top of it, thus emptying the entire bottle violently, I didn’t see the aftermath until 2 days later. It was quite apparent that the gap filling properties were just what I needed for this project.
Anyway, all I need to do now is put on 2 standard size furnace filters, with bungy cords, and add a plug ( i am planning on using a new one here, no need for a fire in my shop ( garage)).
The intake is on the bottom side, so if I hang this above and behind my lathe it should keep me breathing pretty good, I am going to face the exhaust away as well.
I came up with a few more possible names for this challenge….
The Tetnus Challenge.
The How much force does it take to drive a screw with a stripped head challenge.
How do I get my neighbors to think I am even crazier, challenge.
And My favorite…. How many nails and staples can I leave in my driveway challenge.
All in all, I am happy with this, Thank You Gorilla Glue for forcing me to build this.
