Re: The box fan that has been under discussion on LJ for dust collection.
Can you remove the typical 5-fin plastic blade on a box fan and turn it into a buffer or put it to other such use?
I have the popular under $20. Lasko 20” box fan sold by the big box stores. With its size it would seem a candidate for a nice, slow-turning buffer or even a fine-grit sander.
Of course, this all depends on the the motor’s shaft. Is ithe shaft soft plastic? Is it simply too underpowered?
Comments, experiences, suggestions are genuinely appreciated.
