(back) Subject: reverse blower - no April Fool From: "John Vanderlee" <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Thu, 1 Apr 2004 10:01:43 -0800   Hi All,   In our quest to liquidate orphan organ parts to fund our high school project, blowers are sometimes hard to move (no pun intended). Right now we have several small ones - SPENCER - with perhaps more coming. Would there be another use for these, besides air handling? For instance could it be used as the central vacuum in a wood working shop? Anyone ever thought / experienced the same idea?   The point is we normally aim at "organ" buyers, but it would then be possible to expand the market, i.e. different categories on Ebay.   Again , not an April fool joke.....just trying to think outside the box, and get the stuff out.   John V

Spencers are best at what they were designed for, and we builders love to use them.   What do you have and how much do you want for them?   To more directly answer your question: They can be used for dust extraction in a wood shop, but they must first be fitted with a good, upstream, cyclonic separator. Otherwise, the fins get clogged.       Jim
