I needed a new way to create a blower for my black smithing forge. I used a shop vac motor and create a box for it to make a blower effect. Check out the video HERE Make sure to Subscribe for my most recent videos!

I’m afraid that your forge may erupt like a volcano when you turn that blower on! It is moving a LOT more air than the hand crank blower. I’d test this out outdoors where all the burning embers will fall in the snow!

Good luck and let us know how it works.

I second gfadvm, you could run the hose into a y leaving one leg open and put a blast gate on the leg
going to the forge to let you control the amount of air. Let us know how this works out.
