I am building a dust filter above my lathe and am having trouble getting the filter material for it. I need about a sq metre. Anyone know where I can purchase this. I don't think cooker hood filter material will be good enough.

Hi Alex,

I`ve used cooker hood filter material for the initial filtering, though i`ve folded it so it`s double thickness & find it works very well judging by the amount of dust that collects on it. I use a fine filter bag after this initial filtering to collect the really small particles.


Cheers.

After being stung with the costs of replacing my microclean filters I searched around and now use Paint Spray Booth filter. The only problem being the initial cost, most you have to buy in a 20m roll. Unless you know a friendly paint sprayer.
