A friend of mine gave me an old squirrel cage fan out of his old furnace a couple of years back. I finally decided to put it to good use. I mounted the fan in a plywood box and incorporated a furnace filter. The furnace filter is washable so I will be able to re-use it reducing waste. When the fan is turned on it will now filter the dust out of the air. I have the top adjustable to allow for different table heights using it as an extension for my table saw or router table. I can also use it as a table for many uses including supporting my thickness planer while collecting dust when it is in use. Best of all it will be circulating filtered air throughout my work area while keeping me coooler.
