None of that hurts anything, but seems way overboard to me...what's
going to happen to a TEFC motor w/ a little airborne dust around?

Yeah. in person, the scene looks secure, despite the over kill. I had a sense of extra security. Looking at the pics I got a different perspective. The excessive filtering may restrict air flow for that type of motor, though the restriction may not be much or matter much.

I think I'll remove the two side filters and replace with window screen. If, in use, there appears to be excess dust settling on the motor, then I'll reinstall the filters.... or any that warrant installing.

The electrician had advised adding filters, as per an installation he did for a marble/stone cutting company. That company's motor's bearings were affected by stone dust. Maybe it wasn't a TEFC motor.

My next task is to move the jointer into position, closer to the converter, closer to that wall. The jointer is still partially disassembled.... blades and infeed table are presently removed.
