A while back I posted a Shop Filtration unit I had built. It can be found here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/59874.
That unit had an old bathroom fan in it which was rather noisy and I was very limited in how good of a filter I could put in it since is had very little power. I have wanted to change the blower in it for some time. I finally purchased a Dayton 2 speed blower thinking I could modify the housing and install it. I ended up building a whole new housing to accommodate the bigger blower. I also added a timer that will shut it down after a selected time and made 2 slots for back to back filters.
The new unit still has the ability to either recirculate for filtration or I can close the sliding door and open the window for ventilation. The blower is almost silent and I can now run it all the time without the noise. The new blower also moves a lot more air. Thanks for looking
