Step 1: Materials
for this you will need;
metal pipe 1 1/2 or 2 in
bathroom ventilation fan or other small fan (a hairdryer will work)
two 6 in by 5 in metal plate (1/8 in thick)
3 in by 3 in metal plate (1/8 in thick)
Step 2: Cut
cut two pieces of pipe, one about 7 in, the other around 18 in
cut a hole slightly smaller than the pipe in the small plate and in one large plate.
cut a hole slightly smaller than the pipe in the short pipe 2 1/2 in down
cut the angle iron into 3 pieces about 33 in long
cut the end of the long pipe at a 25 degree angle
Step 3: Weld
weld the top of the short pipe to the small plate
weld the small plate to the brake drum
weld the long pipe (angled side)to the short pipe
weld the angle iron on to the short pipe like a tripod
weld the large plate on to the long pipe
weld the other large plate onto the long plate at a right angle so it can hold the fan to the pipe opening
weld scrap metal (small rods) onto the brake drum to make a grate
Step 4: Finish It
put the fan on the big plate
