First project for the shop I thought to share with you. My shop is basically just a small portion of the basement so dust is always an issue. After seeing some nice ideas for air filters from fellow LJs, I decided to give the concept a tried. I bought a real cheap fan for 20$, and grabbed some 3/4 MDF left over from a friend’s project and here you go. The whole thing is quite large actually for my taste. It was more of an experiment than a real project at the start, so I decided to go with 3 filters (furnace filters, 0.99$ each); 1 at the entry, 2 at the exit. Turns out that 2 at the exit is overkill a bit and reduce the air flow. So picture 3 gives you how all this is made, and picture 2 shows the entry filter after an afternoon use. I wired it with a dimmer so I can turn the noise down a bit when working and put it in full speed when I leave the shop.
