Exiled to Missouri
Air intake for air cleaner. I used half-lap joints to build the frame (20.75"x20.75")
I picked mine up a while ago, and it was just sitting around the shop. I believe it came out of a 3 ton unit. What was important for me was that it was wired for 110v so I could plug it into a regular outlet.Ok, question about the blower motor/squirrel cage assembly? When looking for one of these, what size, etc should I be looking for? I have a buddy who owns a HVAC company and he said he'd look for a decent used one for me if I told him what I wanted.
Thanks. That makes sense.ThomasOSB said:I picked mine up a while ago, and it was just sitting around the shop. I believe it came out of a 3 ton unit. What was important for me was that it was wired for 110v so I could plug it into a regular outlet.
I've only had it for a little while, but I do see an improvement. The coat of dust that used to settle on everything is greatly reduced. While cutting, you should still wear a respirator because it can't zap it out of the air. It has to wait until the air current moves it to the intake.Thanks for the video! I sub'd and hit the thumbs up button for ya. I enjoy functional builds like these to make my shop safer and more enjoyable to be in. I just had a new furnace installed yesterday so I pulled the blower out of my old furnace.
I have a few questions:
1. What are your thoughts so far on how it cleans the air in the shop after you have been making cuts?
2. I noticed that my blower has 4 wires for 4 different speeds. Do you think it is worth having a switch for all 4 speeds?
3. When yours runs at night, what speed is it set to?
