To save money, Club member Jerry Will of Celina, Ohio, created his own low-cost dust collector for his shop. He built a wooden frame to hold a 20-in. box fan with a furnace filter placed at each side. He used spacers to center the filters in relation to the fan, and he notched the top of the wooden box to allow for the fan’s handle and speed control. By removing the screws that secure the two opposing strips at the top of the box, Jerry can quickly change the filters when necessary.
