mr ron- thanks for the response and That’s exactly what I would ideally like to do. My problem is SIZE of my shop. 10×16. 7-8’ vaulted ceiling. I have a window AC unit mounted out the wall. (works great) and a fish house direct vent heater set up for natural gas. (haven’t run it yet) I don’t want to worry about possible carbon monoxide problems etc… also loss of heat or cool air.

So That is where I’m at. I could make a mdf baffle with two 4” ports in place of the filter bag… Maybe then route one directly outside and the other to a automotive style filter plenum like kizerpea did in his projects. (cool idea)

Ok. I’m thinking maybe building a “doghouse” for the collection motor and ports, just outside the shed, then routing one line out to “nature”, the other in to replenish clean-conditioned air supply. ???
