As I am still waiting for the funding to come through, so I can add a dust collection system to the shop.... I decided that I would build an Air Cleaner/Filter. At least that would be a start toward better air quality in the shop (and in my lungs )
I initially set out to make something along the lines of what Bill Simpson posted here:
I started with a floor fan from Target. I removed the stand, and determined how big of a hole I would need for both sides of the fan (11 in dia.). Then I built a Circle Jig for my Plunge Router.
More on the Circle Jig can be found here:
After cutting circles in the front and back for the fan housing, I set the fan in place to make sure it had enough clearance (as pictured below). Then I boxed in the fan, essentially making a fan housing.
