This unit was more intended for smokers break rooms in industrial facilities, but it could help to clear the air wherever it is located. The website doesn't indicate that it can use a HEPA filter so it wouldn't be the ultimate filtration system for a wood shop, but if I had one I would certainly use it in my wood shop. At the price, if it runs properly, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. Remember, it's the tiniest micron sized dust that's the most harmful, but just for clearing the air in the shop it should work.
My shop is heated and cooled with a window style heat pump, mounted high and through the North wall of my shop. I've found that a 12 X 20 X 1" pleated furnace filter will fit under the plastic cover and completely cover the evaporator coil. This isn't a HEPA filter either, but it clears the air in my shop well and also keeps the dust from collecting in the evaporator coil. I would expect that the filter unit that you found would do similar if you put good pleated filters in it and cleaned/replaced them often.
Airflow systems should be able to help you find new filters for it.
