Yup. There is more BS day after day than any good real comments. Don't let the armchair jockies get you down...this fan looks great.

I'm usually one of the guys whining about copied stuff, but I think you're way off here. Maybe he's got me fooled, but the DS94HST blades have a big S curve in the leading edge and this doesn't. The stator, though it has 4 blades, has no twist or taper like I said. The DS94HST does. The blade hubs have to be different because more of them fit in the circle.

From one fan builder to another, keep up the nice work and thanks for sharing.

also the schubeler hst fans have the motor wire exit through the stators...

I've owned a DS-94 HST and this does not look like a copy to me..... it's carbon and high blade count....but that's about it


Looks like a nice fan, I'll be keeping an eye out on this one and your price it really great for a large fan

Awesome work! Man you're a really good craftman and I'm very impressed by your work on this fan. How do you mold the fans, I suppose you're cutting small pieces of carbon roving using a model "flat" to have the less weight difference as possible but how do you inject the resin? do you put the resin with a brush and then close the mold? can you explain us your technique? sorry for my english....hope you'll understand what i mean...
Thanks for sharing your beautifull work with us! now I'm thinking about trying this at home too......just a last question : what did you use for your mold? it seems way harder than RTV.....is it PU resin or something like that? sorry for bugging you but it's normal when you make such "state of the art" work like this! ;-)

You are going to have to have access to a cnc mill....Well more than likely...plugs look like they were drawn up in digital and cnc'd....to get those slots exact for a high blade fan you would think it was the only way.....
Drawn up and let the mill cut the plug...

Please specify simple phrases, I use Google translator.

I paint with a brush to form a thin layer of resin. I put carbon, fill the root of the small pieces of carbon. As a filler for the blade, I use chopped carbon fiber mixed with resin.Spacer layer - wax + gasoline.
