Just saw an advert for a “new” air cleaning system aimed at the woodworking market:

Spendy.

Interesting.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I'll pass. Got a small shop, an open window in the back, a box fan in front of the window, and the dust gets blown out of the door. It actually works, and it's paid for.

I do the same thing. My shop is half of my two car garage with a wall down the middle. I place a box fan on a stool behind me as I use my table saw and roll the router table out doors to use it.
I do wear a mask and eye and ear protection. It seems to work quite well. Helps cool the garage in these south Texas summers too.
I also have a large ceiling fan that brings the hot air down off the rafters to be blown out the garage door.
I have been "PLANNING" to insulate and sheet rock the garage for over 25 years, so like Rick, I probably never will get it done.

I looked up a Wen ceiling mounted dust collector to see how they compare. Both filter to 1 micron. The Wen does up to 1044 cubic feet per minute while the Stratus does 1440 cubic meters per hour. There is 35.3 cubic feet in a cubic meter so the Wen filters about 1.5 times what the Stratus does and hangs from the ceiling out of the way and is much cheaper so the Stratus might be a hard sell unless someone needed to be able to move it around with them which would be hard to do with a ceiling mounted unit. https://wenproducts.com/collections/...6-702-1044-cfm

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

A box fan on the floor with a good filter seems like a reasonable and far cheaper alternative. Couple that with the Wen system Charles described would be an even better fit.

Yeah, I wear protection also, and it does cool the shop down.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
