    WEN air filtration

    That Izzy Swan video is just an ad for a filter supplier. Here is a link for a build: Just need to make sure to use a box fan that has a shroud, or else your cfms will suffer with this design. Here is perhaps a better design:

    WEN air filtration

    Posted 2 mos ago, wow. Has anyone made a custom air filter using a box fan with a custom enclosure with multiple filters? This is the way I'm leaning, seems like this will move more air than these smaller units. Thoughts?
