Try using a rocker switch

Y'know, if I were constructing one of these masks-with-a-fan, I'd use a rocker switch like this one:

There's a lot of different models, but I suspect they all would work. Here's a link.

ok, I may be a little slow, but does anyone else find it hard to look at that big paragraph and go back and foruth from it and the paper your writting it down on or when your doing it for that mater and you just get lost?

------------

ok what I'm saying is would it be able to do a step by step commentary>? such as:

1: get in your car
2: drive to radio shack
3: but the items needed.
and so on.

then have another list below that for what you need all listed out.
---

am I asking to much or could it be done?

thanks

fans

I have 1 ,1.5'' sq. 12volt fan(from radio shack-cpu cooler) mounted in my invder.I leaned it between the visor post and the forehead piece,over the jt logo.screws in the bottom holes as spacers ti keep it tight to the post & screws thru the top holes(thru the mask)to keep it in place.Tape on the sides to seal.This is the reason I posted.Its powered off 1 9vt mounted on strap.Sucks air like hell and the battery seems to last 4ever.Oh and I enlarged the vent holes a bit directly under it.

Exclamation Here are my plans

The plans are not very difficult. This all can be taken care of at a Radio Shack... You will need the following:

1. the smallest CPU fan you can find (Mine is lie 1.18 inches)
2. Very Small toggle switch
3. 9 volt battery adapter
4. Saudering Iron with Sauder


This works like a human body. You connect the power to the brain, and connect the brain to the muscles.

*note in the following illustration that "=" represents connectted to*


9voltbatteryadapter=toggleswitch=fan



These plans are the cheapest i could make. This sould releave you of a bout 16 bucks in the US. These plans are also self explanitory so I'm not goin to write down the dirrections cause I want to go back to sleep.

Take your masks with you!

Just don't walk into the store wearing them! The store would probably think you're a robber or nut! But I'd take them along to see what size fan(s), switch, would or would work/ fit. Tell the sale person what you're trying to do, maybe they can give you more ore better ideas!

have any of you guys thought of hard wiring a makeshift headphone in the side and a mini mic in the front of your mask and jack it into cheap walkie talkies. I've thought of this many times, just stuck on the single speaker kept in the cheap ones. I dunno I'm rambling

Cool Tech Mask

I have given very serious thought to doing just that. Aside from paintball, my buddies and I hunt a lot. We have radios to keep track of our locations that have range of up to 300 yards over rough terrain. Basically very good. They even have a head set. On top of that we tinker and have been trying to solve this problem.

As you were implying the problem is that the headsets will not fit into the mask. If you don't mind doing some serious work it can be done. You need to strip the headset down to the bare-bones. Just get the mike, wires, and speaker. NOTE: I HAVE YET TO DO THIS MYSELF SO DO AT YOUR OWN RISK. Then you should be able to mount it all in its proper place after insulating the wires with electrical tape. When I get the money I plan on doing this and I will post better directions that are further than the drawing board.

If all goes the way I have it planned I should have a great mask with microphone and (now) a nice air system.

Is there a Comp USA in your area? They might have fans for laptops that would work...

Check eBay for CPU fans. I don't know if it's cheaper than RadioShack, but they are very inexpensive!
