I have been really busy, but finally got the chance to make a new video and make the air filtration unit I have been wanting to make. I will update later on how much of a difference it makes in the shop. I also still need to stick some trim on the front so I will post that in my projects when it’s done. Thanks to everyone that put their units on here, that helped alot when I was designing mine:) Thanks for watching!

Great video Shelly...even without hearing the classic Zeppelin that you played in a previous video… ;-)

Looking forward to seeing the completion…

I see you have the outfeed table all set up…looks good !

You have a really nice shop…lots of space…great tools…and will have cleaner air in the near future….

lol thanks:) I really wanted to jaz this video up with some Zeppelin or other good music and some fancy scene transitions…but I’m at work so I thought I better post it while I had the chance. I have more time at work than I do at home here lately if that says anything lol. If my ratings go down, I will have to start doing better editing though lol. And thanks for the compliments on my shop too:) That’s like getting a compliment on your kid lol.

This looks great! I saved the fan our of our old furnace for doing just as you are doing! I have not got it done yet, but it is on the short list. Great job Shelly!

One of the things you’ll thank yourself for later. Good job.

That was a good video and the tolls and the shop look great. That is a good project that everyone should consider.

Very interesting video. Will be waiting for part two. Considering something similar to yours but a smaller version as to move air around in the shop for circulation and filtration with main collection system. Hope to get some more ideas from you. Thanks.

It is working great! I have not got it up on the shelf yet, still sitting on the floor, but I still turn it on every time I am in there. It collects an amazing amount of dust. I usually use the vacuum brush to clean the first(cheap) filter every few days. I have already replaced it once. I was spray painting and it really sucked up the over spray from half way across the shop. It is powerful enough to even suck bugs onto the filter and not allow them to fly away lol. Hopefully I will get it off the floor soon b/c it is taking up a lot of space! Lol

Shelly, That’s good news! Do you notice less dust settled out on everything the next day? I rarely notice any dust in the air but the next day I can see what settled out of the air overnight.

Oh yeah, there is a huge difference. It only took a day of working in the shop for everything to be covered before I made this. Now I really only get a lot of dust if I am doing something like routing by hand(don’t have dust collection for that).
