Stamped Steel Manual Blower for Whitlox Wood-Fired Forges
This manual blower offers a 1:32 gear ratio, and cranks out plenty of air supply
The housing and impeller are stamped steel and the gears are cast iron
Height is approximately 10" (8.5" diameter)
Choosing between the hand cranked blowers: This less expensive option is imported from China. The gears are iron but significantly smaller and lighter duty than those of the aluminum blower. The steel housing is sturdy but does not have the traditional weighty feel most people associate with old time hand crank blowers. If you are just trying out a new hobby or only need it for a project or two, the stamped steel blower is a good bet. The cast aluminum blower, however, is probably a better match to our forges in the expected longevity.
