Can’t afford a “real” dust collector yet, but needed to do something to reduce the amount of dust in my garage shop.
A trip to Lowe’s for a 20” box fan and a 3 pak of 20” filters, then a couple hours with some 1/2” MDF and some scrap 5/8” ply (that came as the shipping base for my excalibur scroll saw.) and I had knocked together a box to hold the fan and the filter. I can still get to the controls and the handle, and by removing two screws I can change the filter. After only a couple hours running you can see that it’s already clearing quite a bit of dust from the air.
