Dear Fans of Fans

In support of the Marlot blower, remember that it is possible to buy
hexagonal steel shafts just about anywhere from a steel merchant. You can
turn the end round to suit a ball bearing.

Crispin



Martin Boll and Jeff Davis posted pictures that went along with the original
discussion.

In a discussion of Martin Boll's Malot-blower, in July 2007, I proposed the
use of a bellows.  
(<http://listserv.repp.org/pipermail/stoves_listserv.repp.org/2007-July/0068
56.html>
Review the whole thread, Martin's idea is worth a re-read.  Jeff Davis did
some follow-up development on the idea.)  Coincidentally, that next day I
observed a model of an organ bellows, a single hand bellows feeding into an
intermediate bellows with a weight on top which provided a steady flow into
the organ.  I am sure you could treat the inner-tube in a similar way,
blowing it up with a bellows, or even by mouth.  Would applying a weight
provide more consistent pressure?

Calling a tank of compressed air an 'air battery' seems to make it more
acceptable to the electronic gizmo crowd.
