Customer Question
table, and only the hand/s...
I am about to make a cash cube mini, where it sits on a table, and only the hand/s go through a hole into the cube.
My question is: what is the minimum cfm, and horse power, required for the blower I would buy? The cube will be about 85cm H x 45 cm W. I want to keep noise and cost down, by not 'over-buying'.
Also I may build a full size one, similar to the above example, and wonder how important it is to have the blower UNDER the player's feet, ie under the grate? Or, if made correctly, can I just have the blower/airflow at foot level - no elevated grate? (Like many I see online.)
Cheers,
Karen

Hi, you're project sounds interesting! Tell me more about it. Tell me what a cash cube is, I have an idea, but I'd rather you tell me about it.

Im sorry Susan, I could discuss this with many people, but I posted this query thinking I would be joining a conversation with a person call Tinman. (who seemed knowledgeable). They had a photo of a cash cube being made, they were talking about cfm etc. this is not for you, and me I'm afraid.
