Super Cheap and Easy Fog Chiller





Introduction: Super Cheap and Easy Fog Chiller

A fog chiller cools down fog from a fog machine so that it stays low to the ground. This one costs around $5-$10. I had everything I needed already, you probably do also.

Step 1: Materials

There is not much that you need for this project.

1. Foam cooler
2. Dryer hose
3. fog machine
4. Ice

1. compass
2. knife

Step 2: Measure

You need to cut a hole in both sides of the cooler for the dryer hose, so:
set your compass to 6.5 cm and draw two circles, on opposite sides of the cooler (longways)

Step 3: Cut

Cut out the circles you just drew, the cooler should now look like this

Step 4: Feed

Feed the dryer hose through the two holes. leave one end longer that the other. one side should have about 4 in coming out, the other about 10. try bending the hose inside the cooler to get the most contact with ice.

Step 5: Ice

Fill the cooler with ice

Step 6: Attach

Attach The cooler to your fog machine by pushing the longer end of hose around the nozzle of the fog machine. just keep the two together and all of the fog will go into the hose.

Step 7: Fog!

turn on the fog machine and enjoy your fog not floating away!

    I made it, didn't really work. How long should the tube 'chill'? I let it chill for two hours then tried it with two different fog machines got the same results: a room full of smoke. No low-lying 'fog'. I think it's time to go back to dry ice.

    I have 2 fog machines. Never know when you need one.

    I love this comment and I completely relate.

    Awesome. Simple but very effective!!!

    This is brilliant! I always thought this effect would cost a lot more and hated my fog machine just spraying out smoke lol thanks for uploading this!

    It kinda sucks that its to big to hide if you have it at your front door.

    Brilliant Idea. made our £20 purchase well worth it

    I'd suggest using dry ice so there's no water to clean up.

    I just want to see this fog rolling out of the jaws of my pumpkin, that's all...
