I have 2 box fans with filters on one side of my small shop and a third fan across the room blowing towards the other 2 fans. Works pretty good.

I've use one for years, here's a pic. I use two filters, a washable unit and a 3M unit.

One of the nice features is that you can easily take it to another work location. I patched and sanded some drywall and this unit was right there.

bowdean, if I'm reading you correctly, you are pulling all that stuff right over the fan motor. I use a box fan but have the AC filter on the inlet side. Surprising how much sawdust, etc., that it collects.

This a brilliant out of the box solution to excess dust above and beyond your vacuum assisted router or sander. From the wife and other important members of the house point of view you are being proactive and reducing the cleaning time after a in-house alteration.
