    I know there are some guys here who like to make saw dust in there spare time, so here is my question.
    I have an old air handler i was thinking of mounting to the ceiling in my shop, adding a large filter or series of filters, for the purpose of cleaning the dust in the air. I do not see why this would not help, anyone have any experience or filter suggestions.
    Still learning opinions welcome.

    Go to http://www.woodnet.net and browse the forums/do a search. I've seen many examples of homemade shop filters on that site.

    Personally I went with a Jet air cleaner for my shop. It uses a pleated pre-filter and a bag filter inside the cabinet. It does a good job keeping the dust down in my small shop. Click the little red house below if you want to see pics of it at my site.

    depending on the amount of dust, you may need to step-up to a cyclone dust collector type system with high-capacity filters.

    there are environmental standards which may need to be met (depending on the state, of course)
