This is a fan that friction fits onto the collect of a Dremel/Craftsmen 395 rotary tool. It blows air over the bit to clear the dust from the cutting area so you can see better.
I remixed the original design as I didn’t like the exposed fan blades, so I added a shroud around them. I was also interested in coming up with an optimal blade design to move the most air. I designed and tested 23 different ideas then measured and charted their output. The top 3 are available for download.
There are 3 different fan styles, two that are 25mm in diameter, one that is 20mm. I added the smaller one as I found the larger fans sometimes obscured the bit too much doing fine work. There’s also a version without keying for rotary tools that don’t have any.
Designed for 10.6mm diameter collet. If yours is larger/smaller, just scale the part up down. It requires a friction fit to stay attached.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
