Adequate Air Cleaner is an often overlooked safety feature in many workshops. Most woodworking tools are set up with a vacuum system, but for those who don’t, a mobile air cleaner cart can do wonders when it comes to providing a clean environment.
J. Bates has found a way to repurpose a furnace manufacturer into an air filtration device for his shop. He built a frame around the blower out of plywood and 2 x 4s, and attached a switch to control the fan. The air filter panels are Meru 13 rated and are ideal for people with moderate to severe allergies. They will provide more than enough filtration for his workshop space.
Jay’s reasoning for building this air filter on a rolling cart, as opposed to a traditional roof-mounted system, is that he wanted a unit that he could bring closer to his lathe and other woodworking tools that don’t have a vacuum system. was He is diligent about wearing a respirator, but this tool also reduces the chance that he inhales particles from his work.
