    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy.

    Epilog Helix

    I have read through the posts and nothing seems to match. The motors run fine and they do not heat up at all. Epilog is having us send in the motherboard
