I see another 'Forge Blower' contender!

I guess you have thought of adding a planetary gear get more umph for the blower?

I did, but I was afraid that at 7000 or 8000 RPM, the plastic gears would shred or melt. Nylon or POM might work, but PLA, ABS or PETG probably wouldn't.

Ingenious! Dude, you're like Nikola Tesla for mechanics! :)

Thanks, but note that I didn't really invent this concept. You can buy similar blower attachments for weed whackers that are designed for swappable tools.

I think you win the award for one of the most genuinely useful real world 3d prints here. I am definitely taking a crack at this.

Thanks! Post a "make" if you do build one.
