Introduction: Working K'nex Table Fan

Picture of Working K'nex Table Fan

Hey guys,

Man it's been ages since I've been on here. Things have really been changed up.
So yeah, I made this the other day for the fun of it. It's a working knex fan that has 4 blades that spin at roughly 555 RPM. Now I would say that's pretty good for a knex fan. It's small enough to fit on a desk, but strong enough for you to feel a breeze. So yeah, it's nothing that special, but I thought I would show it to you since I haven't been on here in like 4 months.  


Oh yeah, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!!!

I made something similar to this once. How many gear-to-gear systems are there?

whats the 2 motors for? couldn't you use just 1?

numro_xi (author)aleceatsfood2011-05-09

more motors = more power = more rpm = more air blown. you could use one but it wouldn't be as powerfull/good.

I would very much like to make would work great on my desk!
Or if you could make a comment telling how to make it, that would work also.

Well I built it and I think it is great but you could have geared it up one more time on the same base and you could have bent the fins more, but besides those two things great job I'll get a picture of mine soon.

 I'm leaning towards wow, but I cant really say much. How did you make the gears turn so fast? I dont have gears so any alternatives, I have a yellow medium one and some grey ones only not red ones or... the other pro ones.

Owenmon (author)2010-04-29

Raiden97 (author)2010-05-01

That looks great, man! Glad you got back into Knexing, lol. :-)

Thanks man, Yeah I guess I just needed a break. So what's up with you??

I'm working on a new Ible of a ball machine lift. :-D

Cool, can't wait to see it. :) Yeah, I've gotten a lot of good ideas over my break. So there will be some new stuff coming.

I privatized the Ible, so you can see it if you want. I'll PM you the link. Also, I could send you a top secret update of Cataclysm. :-)
