I have reached the point that I am seriously contenplating upgrading my shopvac based DC to a proper DC. In the 1200CFM range. I am also planning on building a proper Air filter.
So in preparation I have been reading articles, reviews, blogs and following just about any links related to Dc and Air Filltration. One thing I expected to see but never came across is a design where a DC, say with a 1 micron canister would be used as an Air filteration when it is not being used on a tool.
What I am imagining is a design similar to a downdraft table but mounted on a ceiling or a wall.
So you could blast gate between the tool and the air filtration when not using the tool
So except for noise, would this concept actually work?
My shop is less than 1200 Cubic Feet – so 1200 CFM will turn my shop inside-out every minute.
