I acquired an older furnace blower saw it as a perfect opportunity to make my shop a little cleaner. The unit itself is pretty large at 33”x22”x19” tall. I have two 16”x20” filters on each side and the air blows out the top. I splurged and installed a one hour timer on it. It’s mostly made out of scrap 1/2” ply to attempt to keep the weight down. With the 1/2HP motor it really sucks. You can watch the dust travel 10 feet straight to the filter. It was an easy build that only took a few hours to make. The hard part was lifting it to the ceiling by myself.
