So I bought a standard 20" box fan from HD and a couple 20" filters, figured these fans get a million miles on them in trailer parks across the country why not my shop too? Using some scrap wood I had laying around and misc woods screws I threw this together in 20 minutes. I essentially pulled the back vent panel off and attached a standard air filter. Simple and cheap, we'll see how effective shortly. My plan is to hang it up near the ceiling in my shop near my work bench, it will move some air and filter it too.





So I decided before I torch the folding metal table with wood top I picked up for free off of a local porch using it as a welding table, hey it's better than Don's cardboard tables.... I would invest in another inexpensive option. They had these at our local tractor supply for $99, it even comes preassembled which I thought was a nice feature. It has a semi flat sheet metal top and is fairly sturdy. I wouldn't go pounding on steel with it or mount a vise to it but for various welding jobs it will give me a portable option in addition to my big heavy welding bench. For $99 it seems to be of good quality.

I like that. You should see the fan upstairs when I was painting with the airless!

See if I can find a washable filter?

Well, I figure if nothing else Charles will be envious of my redeckedness....

So in my huge workspace the other day when I brought the lathe home I leaned the chip tray up against my high dollar zuke air filtration system. I was out wrenching on the xj (actually breaking my new nut zert tool) when Baylee & I heard a loud commotion only to see the expensive chinaman handle let loose and the fan fly to the ground.

So since it?s been working extremely well for the $20 I spent building it I decided some no cost fixin was in order. Here we have it, better than new & definitely more rednecked.... :popcorn:

Needs a piece of hose so you don't cut those soft hands.
