This is a medium to large workshop filter unit which has the advantage that it can be positioned anywhere in the workshop, either on a bench, a shelf or suspended from the ceiling. The unit is easy to operate and has three speeds simply activated by the push of a button or by using the convenient remote control. It should be mounted away from ventilation and heating vents and is only suitable for non-metallic dust particles. The unit can be positioned either vertically or horizontally to best utilise the space available. It is fitted with a pleated cloth main filter and an electrostatically charged pre-filter. An optional charcoal filter is available which can (a) neutralise odours and harmful organic fumes and (b) refresh the air by removing smoke, dust, bacteria, pollen and other harmful microscopic particles. Supplied with main filter, electrostatically charged pre-filter and remote control. For best results leave the AFS-500 running for a few minutes to clean the air after your machines have been switched off, or use the built in 2,4 or 8 hour timer options to run the filter after you leave the workshop.

Dissapointed with AxminsterThis is the first time that I’ve been disappointed with Axminster and I hope that it’s the last, I’ve purchased all my main equipment from them and may have to consider others in the future. The Jet AFS -500 has a known electric circuit fault. Both Jet and Axminster are aware of this. You may be lucky and the model you buy might be ok, or it will stop working while under guarantee otherwise you will need to pay £61.51 for a replacement part. Because it’s a known fault I feel that either Jet or Axminster should pay for the upgrade or not sell anymore until they replace the electrical circuit board. Many reviews written here confirm this. The unit itself is good with 3 speeds that can be operated via buttons at the rear of the unit or with the use of a remote control.

Good for your healthThis shop add-on is very good for your health, for now(a month of heavy use, 10h a day) the machine works flawlessly without any kind of problem. I've read of possible faulty capacitors in control board, so I've already bought spare and more durable capacitors... just in case (but I think that can be related to a poor and old electrical line in some country).

Does the job- good service from AxminsterWorked well for two years then stopped. Fault on controlling circuit board diagnosed over phone by Axminster. Replacement board arrived following day FOC. Great service from Axminster! Well done.

Useful piece of kit and good customer supportIt worked fine for just over two years. Then it packed up. Instead of whining here I wrote to Customer Support who sent me a new circuit board. So it's not only a useful piece of equipment, it also has good support from Axminster. I reckon that makes up for Jet's poor quality control in its circuit board manufacture.

Great...until it wasn't!This machine worked faultlessly for three years...but then the electronics packed in and the cost of replacement parts is more than the cost of a new machine! My verdict would be its not really up to the job in an commercial/trade environment.
