close. . It’s a DYI - REPACK of the glowforge filter for like 1 / 10th the cost
a step by step how to do it.

I am adding iG0r to my frakenforge so its completely self contained.
since I am producing glass dust, and no real wood / acrylic smoke, I think
a external filter will be a winner…

I’d be curious where you’re sourcing activated charcoal filter media for that price point. From what I understand the filter uses quite a lot of that, replacing the media for 1/10th the cost ($25) would seem like a stretch, not to mention the other filter components.
