    Clean Air 2

    Seems like I'm stalking Vaughn, but I bought my Jet Air Cleaner at the same time he did from Amazon. I cut a couple 2x4's and mounted them between the floor joist then installed 4 4" carriage bolts down and mounted the cleaner to it. It's very nice and quite.







    I didn't have the squirrel cage problem, but I did have a little damage on the filter end. It looks like it was dropped on its edge at one time. I doesn't do anything to the performance and mounted you really cant see it.



    Now its time to save up some more money and buy a dc.

    Regards,

    Randy

    Randy,

    Nice installation! Congrats!

    I mounted mine in my previous wood rack, and the air exhaust is close to the wall...about 18 inches, similar to yours. I have been wondering if the air flow would be better if I turned it sideways so there is nothing behind it. Have you given any thought to this?

    Looks good, Randy. I didn't even really check out the mounting clips with mine. I'll have to keep that in mind if I decide to move it.

    I was wondering what that unmarked white van in front of the house was all about. Musta been you, BTW, I won't start worrying about you copying me until you grow your hair long and get kinda strange-looking. (Not real strange, but enough to scare small children.)

    Thanks Greg. I wondered about the air flow when I mounted it, but it was close to the table saw and planer and they make a lot of dust.

    Once I get everything down from the garage and into the shop I might move things around. It wont be hard to move if I need to do that. Also, once I get a real dc I will probably have to move it anyway.

    With my current hair length, it will be a couple years to catch up.

    I'm really impressed with the suction it has. I had it on my fake bench running before I mounted it and was throwing sawdust up it front of it. You could see the smaller pieces being sucked into the filter.

    Congrats on the clean air. It should help when sanding.

    How about some walls too, Randy?

    Seriously, aren't you worried about that plastic getting torn/wrecked?

    I kinda like the whiteness of the plastic, it really looks better than the concrete.

    Walls are on the list as well, along with lots of other things. But dc is needed since I would have to cut wood to make the walls.

    only a bit.

    besides, that's what the garage is for (circular saw work.)
