    Hard to say since the Noctua fan is uniform at all speeds and the motor fan was almost not there at low speeds.

    Nice job! This is great, does this fan keep the motor as cool? Before/after pics of the wall & surface finish? We played with static balancing the fan, rubber damping the motor & mount and the V link belts years ago on the first set of S1 & SII 1100s. The improvements cut finishing time by half.

    On my Series II+ it does quite well. Even after running near the yellow at low speeds there is no noticeable heating in the motor.

    I am interested in one of these. Can you put it on eBay. That would help streamline your sales and make it easy to buy. I bought my coolant gauge that way.
    Thanks.

    I'm interested in a fan kit too and sent a PM to that effect. Are the kits still available?

    Received a nice package today. This might be the best use of 3d printing I've seen to date. Very well done - cannot wait to install. Trying to make a time slot to install this afternoon.


    Thank you Gary!

    Mine's installed. Perfect fit, didn't even have to demount the motor to do it. VERY low noise, and less vibration.

    Runs fine from a 12v dc power brick I already had in the head to power a ring light. Pulls about 100 mA or so, just used the two pins (ie, ignored the PWM wire).

    Great job by Gary, well worth the price.

    I got mine yesterday but it will have to wait for the weekend to install it. It looks like nitewatchman did a quality job on the design, implementation, and packaging.

    Another happy customer here. Installed the fan kit this morning and like GLCarlson, I did not have to remove the motor. The spindle/motor is noticeably quieter (75db vs. 79db measured 3' from spindle @ 4000 rpm). Great instructions and the humor was appreciated.

    Thanks Gary!
