Filter, screen, mesh question.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm making my own case and I am trying to find an appropriate filter media to use on a removable tray (like the 800d bottom filter) to keep dust out. I don't know what would be best, and would like some input. Additionally, would any fans be able to generate enough pressure to be able to use a paper (automotive cabin air filter) or cloth filter (K+N dust screen) ?

Why not just get some pantyhose? It's effective.

I'm not sure. I hadn't considered it. Are there any downsides?

Not that I know of. I mean, panty hose costs little to nothing.
Not to mention, if you really want to be cheap.
Go to a shoe store and just take a few LOL, then it costs nothing

I have robbed my girlfriends apartment, and have returned with two questions. The opaque ones are way more dense then the translucent ones. Will the opaque ones be too restrictive or should I use the other kind? Does the fabric come embedded with dust and need to be vacuumed or washed in water?

To be honest, try them both. See which one works better for you.
I highly doubt the thickness of it will restrict THAT much air flow.
But yes, it will catch the dust and just hit it with a vacuum.
