My shop vac is an old Sears brand shop vac and is very loud, but it’s small size is great for use as a dust collector for my mpcnc.
I plan for the short term to design a box to enclose it completely allowing passages for the exhaust air to escape. This should pretty much eliminate the noise.
Has anyone done this ?
In the future, I want to replace it with a much quieter model. The Rigid wd1450 looks interesting but do others have a model that they believe is quiet and/or have experience with this particular one?
My only concern would be heat build up inside the box. I know it exhausts heat thru the exhaust but is the cool air intake on most not thru the top for clean air?
