Topic tags/keywords: question

A while ago someone else already asked this question but I could not find the answer , if available.
Grizzly, Jet and other shop air cleaners come with a remote to control not only the on/off function but also the speed and the timer.
Short of buying such a device, as a spare, from Grizzly, do you know where to buy one?
Thank you.

Bert you might check with an electrical supply house. I think a ceiling fan control could be used to run a blower that runs on regular 110v. I am thinking you could even find one that may even have a sleep timer but this is the feature that will be the hardest to find. Most of the ceiling fan wireless remotes include a speed setting. If you ask me I would prefer a wired control (installed next to the light switch that is easy to activate as I leave the shop for the day). I would end up spending some valuable shop time looking for the remote. If I built a filter for my shop I am very sure it would always be set to high speed when running. Good luck. I am looking forward to seeing more dust collection and shop filter info from StumpyNubs his next blog is supposed to feature his new shop air filter as well as more on his wood cyclone powered by twin HF blowers.

Thank you all for your replies.
I tough about the fan remote but I am not sure how they are wired.
The selector switch on the wall would be nice, only if I install my fan on the ceiling thing that I am not yet sure that I want to, but it requires four wires from the selector to the fan, I only have two.
I do not think that I will run this fan on high very often, it just push too much air, probably medium high ( this is a 4 speed fan)
I am 63 years old and each year I get one year older which mean that to climb on ladder to select the fan speed or to replace the filters is getting more and more difficult and “dangerous”.
My ceiling is 10 feet high.
I might end up putting the air clearer on the ceiling but if I can I wold prefer to not put it there.
A long time ago , back home in France , I made this thing for my mother to hang the laundry to dry. It was hanging on the ceiling and it came up and down with a system of ropes.
I am thinking about doing the same thing with the air cleaner, hanging it on the ceiling but to be able to get down to service the filters and other maintenance.
