How much air does this move? I just started work on a Ranque-Hilsch Effect Tube that could be interesting with this.

Ahhh. I like playing with fire..

The handle seems under designed, it could hold maybe 6 AA ? (or more) I use Tim Allen for inspiration in everything of this sorts. If it is worth doing, it is worth over doing.! Should that motor be bigger.?

More than enough to blow the fire into an inferno. For a forge, make one of these http://thingiverse.com/thing:7350thingiverse.com/thing:7350 around 100mm in diameter and 55mm thick. Run it off a 12V motor good for 5,000RPM and you're into hovercraft territory.

Damn that went in the wrong place.

More batteries would make it rather noisy and prone to blasting smoke and ash all over the living room.

never such of a thing as making something too powerful, you just need to make the rest of the stuff to match that amount of power. :P

sweet!! i was in the process of building a small forge, i will have to try one of these out


One of these with a 12V 8,000RPM motor is more than enough!
