Dust collector conversion

Post by trainboy » Thu Mar 19, 2020 7:49 pm

Has anyone converted a woodworking dust collector into
a CNC downdraft fume extractor? Wynn Env. makes a
canister filter to replace the cloth bags on these dust
collectors...

I don't believe one of those dust collectors would move enough air volume to keep all the smoke from rising. Not sure what the cfm is on the unit your looking to work with but the ones I have seen just wouldn't cut it.
