You can afford a 4K square foot garage, and can’t afford a dust collector? WOW…

Harbor Freight 2HP dust collector $139.00 on coupon. Harbor Freight dust collection accessory kit with hose, splitter, blast gates, dust hoods $44.99. Shaker Felt 1 micron filter bag, $30.00 @ Highland Woodworking. Fab up a Thien baffle to go in the inlet ring, and you will have a nice, effective, and cheap dust collector…

Overhead air filtration should THEN be addressed. Most ambient filters are rated to handle about 2K square feet. You have twice that. I would suggest if you can find them, dig up a couple of used, squirrel cage blowers and build your filters using 3M Filtrete filters, of increasing MERV ratings. (2 stage minimum, 3 is better…)
