The sawdust and chips will destroy the motor on a duct fan. Use a dust collection blower where the dust will not get in the motor. Such as…. http://www.harborfreight.com/13-gallon-industrial-portable-dust-collector-31810.html , just don’t use the bag filter.

that is basically what we used to call a squirrel cage fan, I think? if I have an old one that was used in a ventilation system would that work?

A squirrel cage fan won’t work. That type of fan doesn’t develop enough static pressure for exhaust service; it is mean’t for blowing, not sucking.

you have saved me a lot of trouble, thank you.
since I dont plan to use the bag would I be better off to try and buy a fan someowhere else with similar specs to the one from harborfreight or should I go ahead and buy from them?
I have never felt very good about the quality I received from HF

If you don’t want to spend a lot I think the HF one I linked to is your best option. Other similar ones are quite a bit more expensive.

Have your say...
