I Forge Iron

DIY blower


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share this link with y'all from Tim Lively's site. Looks like something one could make with wood scraps and an afternoon. Save a lot of time, money and trouble finding and 'original' one too -- time, money and trouble better spent on hammering iron, on buying coal and on convincing the wife that 'it's not junk it's resources!'

the fan inside will move more air if its reversed and why not put 6 blades on it. Also if you use a 12 or 16 inch bicycle front tire bolted to the plywood side and have it run against the shaft you will get more speed out of it. kind of the reverse of a tire hammer motor
