I finally have half a basement to set up as a shop. found a jet AFS1000 in nice condition on craigslist for the right price. I am trying to figure out the best location to install it in my shop. Having 7’ ceilings, it seems that any place I locate it will cause a hazard. Here is a primitive layout of my shop. Where do you think the best location for this unit and the best direction for airflow.

thanks for the help,

I read something like this somewhere else, but this agrees with what I read. As much as possible I followed the advice in the article. I couldn’t get as close to the wall as they are.

I have a powermaster unit of similar design so I know what you should expect from it. Cause of the 7’ ceilings, you do have a valid concern, but looking at the layout the choice is easy. Put it up on the ceiling over that shelf so the intake is on the router side as that is your big dust generator, and the exhaust is toward the desk. that unit should cyclone the are sufficiently to flush that small space in just a couple minutes.

You could put it over the table saw with intake pointed toward the jointer and router, but you will probably end up banging it up with boards and it will limit you work area over the saw by it’s depth.

Have your say...
