These soldering guns they are great but they can overheat.

The label says "1 minute usage time" and "4 minutes for cooling".

So if you want to put a normal computer fan go ahead, very easy to do, and you can use masking tape and be done in 4 minutes.

It was not enough for me, so I put a high speed fan for extreme cooling. I used a brushless motor and printed a fan on the 3d printer, and printed a case, materials used below:

  • 12V power adapter
  • Servo Tester
  • 10-20A ESC
  • Power the world motor

The links will be in the last step when you are ready to get started.

Step 1: 3d Printed Fan.

The fan and case are drawn, and then 3d printed. I was not sure if it would work or if it would spin and explode, but it works beautifully and I did not have to do any balancing, only the normal clean it up after the print.

Here is a video for proof : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPghH_uB9Y0

Step 2: So Build Something

Now that this has more cooling you can work on projects for that much longer.

The links to the parts list is right here.
buzzebike.com/FanPartsList.html

At the bottom of the list you can get ALL the parts at once, in a kit, while simultaneously supporting me on the next kit design.

I am trying to build more useful things and if you have anything to request, please do!

<p>dude iTS awesome </p><p>Pleace do me a fafore, ad an smoke extruder,to your solder tip,next to iT </p><p>So iTS desmoke iT and attached to the 3D printed housing,( so e sort of tubing)</p><p>So iT blows out from iT. But you must place a piece of corbonfilter, for the toxics.</p><p>Good idea or not?</p>
<p>OK here is your requested fume extractor hope you like it</p><br><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Extreme-Fume-Extractor-or-Fume-Hood/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Extreme-Fume-Extractor-or-Fume-Hood/</a></p>
<p>OK that sounds cool</p>
<p>for sombody reply About blowing out, or so</p><p>Witch direction iT wil blow the smoke to iTS not relevante the corbon wil do iTS Job.</p><p>Becous This fan is blowing, in the iron to prevent heating</p>
<p>but i whas easier with an 12v fan of a pc, so you have a simple conection on the solder irons bord itself.</p>
