can you use a simple box fan and filter to make a downdraft table? Answered
I do art gourds and some woodworking, both of which make lots of fine dust. I have seen small downdraft table with about a 10" fan with a screen over it, but they want $175 and I just can't see paying that.
If I cut a hole in a table and mount the fan underneath, but put a filter on top so the dust will stay out of the motor, wouldn't it do the same thing or would it not have enough power?
