Filter for a Pentz Air Cleaner

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I want to make a Pentz Air Cleaner so I can keep the air clean while I use non-electric tools. If you are unfamiliar, this is an 8" centrifugal fan on top of a large canister filter. My plan is to use these supplies:

Filter: Clark NF20011 nanofiber, MERV 15, 260 sqft of filter
Pre-Filter: 30 PPI Speaker Foam that I wrap around the filter
Fan: FanTech FG8

My shop is small, so this will be permanently mounted on a shelf near the floor.

This is not exactly what Pentz recommended, but the fan he recommended seems to be low quality and the Wynn filters are $120 more with a longer lead time.

Does anybody have any feedback or suggestions on this plan?

I am working on a project which will need wood inserts
I am not familiar with wood insert , looking for some help

I would like to use 5/16 thread size insert which will go into Red oak.

1st I looked in to this but realize these are for soft wood.

Soft wood

Then looked for Hard wood and found these, which are brass.

Brass is soft material, will these work in Red oak ? any other options ?

Thanks
