I was leaning on the tailgate of a guys truck at work last week and spotted a little fan laying in the bed.
First off I need to tell you I am known for looking in the back of peoples trucks and if I see something back there more than twice I ask what they intend to do with it. Most of the time they just give me whatever I am asking about because they all know I will continue to ask until I get it anyway. The way I figure is if they wanted it bad enough then they would not let it sit back there and get ruined when I can put it to better use.
So I pick this little fan up and water poured out of it. I ask the guy what he was going to do with it while the water was running out. He said it was ruined and to take it.
I took the battery part off the fan and wired it direct to two 3.5watt solar panes and Wow! it works great.
The plan is to build a filtered box for the fan inside the shop, kinda like a return air for a house. That way the air in the shop will exchange and heat the space at a more rapid rate instead of constantly pulling cold air from the outside and trying to heat it.
It sounds good in theory at least.
Oh, one last thing before I go. It is always nice to come home and find a package sitting on the counter from a fellow blogger. Kelly over at Kelly's Happy Hollow Farm is alright in my book. If you get a chance please go and check her out. It's the little things that make you say, "Well I'll be"
That's all I got for now.
Have a good day.
