greetings from Canada
excuse me if I have the wrong member but I read somewhere about a wire conversion with a commercial type bouncy castle blower to a variable speed control........I actually picked one up today to replace my weak 60CFM fan , it was cheap and it's very well built , and it blows !! . it's not the typical lightweight yellow ones but a powerful unit and am looking for the wiring instructional for a ceiling fan rotary control dial.........again sorry if it wasnt you, just trying to remember where I read about it !!
cheers , ROB

check the rating of the speed controller, it needs to be able to control a motor as big as the blower motor or you will have problems ( most ceiling fans do not have large motors )
you will probably find that the blower is 1500w and the ceiling fan was 100w or even less giving you less than a second before it burns out quite spectacularly.
it is a lot easier to use 2 valves and a T piece, one for air into the forge and the other to bleed off the other 95% of the air
OK thank you for the insight....appreciate it
my current setup has just one valve but the 60 CFM fan has to run wide open to get to a decent temp so the valve is fully open.......hence the need for a bigger blower
so if I go to having 2 valves, would you put the 'T' just above the blower to bleed off and then another valve before the mixing of the gas/air ........
