What can I use to pump a good amount of air through a tube? Answered

I am making a shoe drying rack and I need something that can pump a decent amount of air through a 1/2 inch tube. Does anyone have suggestions on what I can use and how I can hook this up?

1/2 inch tube won't allow much throughput without increasing the pressure significantly. A simple computer 12v fan can get the airflow you need, but consider upping the tube diameter to reduce constriction.

Constructing an air-box is easy, make a small box, aim the fan into an opening (the size of the fan), then attach tubing to other holes.
