In Response To: Re: Which blower? (Sean S)


A BMT-7 Crossfire and a hand-torch will need around 3.8 cfm of air. Will a 50-100 cfm regen blower work? Yes. Is it a good use for such a blower? No.

A 4.2cfm linear-piston runs around 180.00 retail. You could probably even add a tipping torch to this setup.

You'll get (approx):
1/8 the power consumption
1/4 the noise
1/4 the weight & size (maybe even less)
