Okay, so it’s a diy filter, yes?


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…

To be clear, those pictures are from This happened to my Air Filter

yup “not my pictures”


Is that the same as activated charcoal?

I use something similar as a pre-filter when I use my filter.

I’m confused - that carbon pad isn’t remotely the same as pile of carbon chunks. (being mostly polyester webbing with some carbon dust sprinkled in)
