ChrisK, the motor speed is changed by connecting different wires, i.e., changing windings. It looks like I’ll have to experiment with wormil’s suggestion and try reducing the inlet area – I like the idea of using perf board.

Removing blades also scares me. I have placed a piece of tape across every second blade, on the inside and outside of the blower cage. It does reduce the flow somewhat but not as much as I would like and I’m afraid it will come off over time. If I could find something that would completely fill the space between two blades, and not peel off, I’d try it, especially if I could fill 3 spaces out of 4.

Any suggestions for something that wouldn’t affect the balance of the wheel?
