Recycled Coca Cola Box Blower Build (Manual/Automatic)


Recommended Posts

After reading another user's post on how they built their hand cranked blower (30-40 hour project, etc.), I assumed there had to be a better way.

Introducing...my repurposed Coca Cola box with a salvaged bathroom fan blower ($3) as an attachment for use with either an adapted hand crack (i.e. mole hand grinder) or drill. I could have used a Milk Bone box and save even more time, but it hadn't even been opened yet so I opted to resize this box instead.

The blower is converted to an attachment with a single toggle bolt. It basically looks like one of those video card SLI monstrosities, but is highly configurable: cut into it, add cardboard and hot glue it back together.

Just watch out for sparks and try not to get it caught on fire!

More photos documenting the entire process are/will be available at my shared Google photo album :)

Total time spent: 1-1.5 hours
Total cost: $3
