    In Shop Celing Air Cleaner

    This one has been in the shop since I moved in. It was an article from a magazine.
    The bottom is installed in the picture and slides forward to put in the fine filter.
    Then the bottom is moved in the opposite direction and two coarse, standard fiberglass
    furnace filters are installed. Squirrel cage blower was from Grainger I believe. It is shown
    without any filters installed since I was changing them when the picture was taken.
    This is fairly heavy but it is supported on 3 trusses so not too much load on any one.

    First picture is the outlet and the second is the inlet. You can see two slots that open
    from the bottom when the lower panel is moved forward.


    Cheers, JR

    Here is a link with pictures of one that is built exactly like mine:
    Shop Made Air Cleaner - by Gene47 @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community
    My unit uses 3 filters that are 12 x 24 inches. The first two are inlet filters and can just be coarse fiberglass furnace filters.
    The outlet filter should be one of the finer web type for filtration of very fine particals. Bottom slides forward or rearward to change the filters.
    Not all that much to it. Just a fan,box, and some filters. Probably cost $100 to build 20 years ago. I see that Jet has one about this size for $500.00
    YIKES that is a bunch of cash for a blower and some filters.

    Good luck with your build.

    Cheers, JR
