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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
