I just finished reading through bill pentz’s information(most of it anyway) and was wondering if anyone has built his budget blower system, if so I would love to see pictures of it.

Are you talking about building the complete system as described on Bill’s web site? I thought about building one, but realized that materials alone would add up to over half the cost of buying a Clearvue system.

Impeller $100
Motor $200+
Filters $250
Sheet metal for cyclone $50-100

This is just the big ticket items and doesn’t include labor. So I decided to just buy the Clearvue. There are cheaper systems available. Grizzly has some smaller units for under $1000.
