Wood magazine has a short article on how to pipe tunes into the shop. Who here has more than just a boom box in their shop? After I get the shop built, I'll be spending a Lot of time out there, and I'm thinking that a couple of things will make that time more comfortable. I'm not quite an audiophile, but I enjoy having good tunes in the shop. Depending on mood, it could be anything from Jazz to C&W, to Classic Rock to talk radio. I"m also a baseball fan, and will be listening to many games. I'll start out with a boom box, and for awhile that will suffice, but I'd like to build an enclosure to keep the dust out of my stereo tuner. I'm also going to have a TV and vcr, but I'm less concerned with them than the tuner. I realize that periodically vacuuming and/or compressed air will help, but I'd also like to keep the dust out if I can.
I'm thinking of a ventilated/filtered box with a gasket around the face of the tuner, allowing access to the face of the tuner. The only 'problem' with the tuner it never has had a remote , so I'll need to have the front open for access to the controls.
Has anyone built a box to keep the dust out? I'm thinking that a couple of pancake fans to overpressure the cabinet, but where do I pull the air in from? If I pull from the shop, I'll just be concentrating the dust quicker. What sort of filter media should I look for?
My eventual plans for the shop include a DC of course, plus a home brewed air cleaner on a timer, so hopefully I'll just be minimizing a small amount of dust to begin with.
