First let me start with the story on the motor ….. it kept on shutting down ….the problem with it was several little things …1-pulleys not lined up right 2- belt to tight 3- not enough resistance ….all these problems made the amps go way to high in turn shut it down …if I remember correct TungOil said about amps being to high
well anyways here we are now done not much to talk about sheet of plywood , squirrel cage blower , 3 20×20 cheap filters all together was about $60.00 and 1 afternoon was gonna paint it but I thought WHY???? LMAO :<))
just finished cleaning shop so through a pic in of that also

nice work, always satisfying when a project gets completed. I think you should finish it in, well, tung oil!

I run mine on wheels, and during the hot days of summer, have it blowing on me as much as its sucking the dust out of the air.

Excellent addition to the shop for a bargain of what other units might cost.
