I forgot to mention here is another one (I missed the first
one- Mike B.)
I'm surprised no one has yet directed you to the ezine archives, Thierry Varem-Sanders wrote a article on building a downdraft dust curtain...looks portable to me since he has it mounted on a WorkMate.(G)
I made a dust collector starting with a 21” box fan. I made
a shell to go around it that is open on the out side and where the in
2 doors that swing out and a "hatch back" that swings from the top.
The 2 doors that swing out from the sides support the hatch when it is
operation. I made both swing doors and the hatch from Plexiglas so that
would shine thru. I fixed the shell so that it is deeper than the case
fan so that I could put 3 furnace filters between the fan case and the
when they are shut. a simple strap across at top and bottom holds the
in place. It works just great.
