Thank you for help in advance and sorry if this is repeated question. I have been looking for an answer all over the place and can’t find a clear answer.
I just bought GF plus last week to start a mall kart for laser engraved gifts so i need an fume extraction and purification system to keep air clean in mall. I’m aware of the compact filter
option but hate how expensive the replacements filter are $250 especially that i’m supposed to use laser frequently with MDF materials that could fill up filter fast. I was able to find some alternative and cheaper fume extractor options with cheaper filter replacements online but i’m not sure if they will work.
Here’s what i’m thinking, i set up the GF to run and push the fumes out the fan and hose and then let the 3rd part extractor collect fumes as soon as they exit the GF hose. I loaded up a image that would show my idea below . And if anyone has used the compact filter can you please provide your experience on how long they last
