JET Air Filtration System, Model# AFS-1000B
Great Air Filtration
I am a weekend woodworker and do a lot of home maintenance. I have had this Jet air cleaner model for over 10 years and it has always worked flawlessly. The remote works great and I use it even though I can reach up to the control panel but it would be especially useful if your garage or workshop has high ceilings. I generally keep it on low speed when doing just a few minutes of sanding but if I am cutting (thick pieces) and sanding for longer periods of time that generates fumes and smoke too, I will run it on high. Noise is minimal at low speed but on high its a bit louder but quieter than most of my power tools as its definitely sucking in a lot more debris on high speed. The re-useable inside fabric filter is easy to clean and you can even clean the "disposeable" outside filter rather than buying another jet filter. I just use my shop vac to reach up and carefully suck the debris off of the outside paper jet filter. I have read that you can use a standard cheaply priced furnace filter for the disposeable filter but you have to really squeeze and bend the cardboard to fit it in. I think its just as easy to vac off the outside filter and occasionally take out the internal fabric and clean that off. I give this product 5 stars for ease of use, quality of filtration, and product longevity.

I have been using the Jet filtration unit for awhile and would definitely buy it again. It does a great job of filtering the air while I run my woodworking equipment. The filter is easy to remove to either clean or replace. The unit comes with a remote controller (perfect!) and three fan speeds. There is also a timer option for those times when I need to run the unit for a short amount of time.
