I have the Jet AFS-1000 and like it a lot…

imo you need the thick fabric sock type filter to get the fine stuff….

the hot air furnace type pre-filters won’t cut it by themselves…. even if stacked several deep.

I turn mine on pretty much every time I run a power tool and for sure, every time I run my DC.

My shop is 23’x21’ and the filter turns over the entire air volume of the shop very quickly…..

Just the other day I was hand routing and couldn’t really catch the dust at all….. So I ran the filter on high and the shop air was cleaned up in no time.

Grizzly makes a knock off of the Jet for quite a bit less money.
