Great ideas

Just got through reading all the pages in this post. Great ideas by all. Someone said earlier on wy bother go through all this and not just use some anti-fog spray or wipe. Well....i believe that it's not just the idea of going no-fog but it's the fact that you can do it yourself and be to customise it to your liking.

I myself will be trying a combinations of suggestions and I will post my findings and pictures as well.

GREAT JOB GUYS. Hope this Thread never gets OLD.....

i bought anti fog spray for hockey and sprayed it on and when it fogged it caked on the fog so it was even worse plus what if you forget to put on the spray and the fan keep you cool less sweat ... i put one fan in mine a mini one works great maybe i will put in another ... the guy said get everything for less then $10 not true .. one little fan is $15 at radio shack

i bought a fan from radio shack and it was about $15 dollars .. i cut a square hold in the visor then cut a hole into top plastic above the mask lens and made a vent out of plastic (6th picture) then i went and got an old broken answer machine and took out the 9 volt cord and wired it to the fan and zip tied it to the mask . then i made a box out of plastic and duck taped over it to hold the batterie and then i ziped tied the box in . and then i put the batterie in and know i have my own home made defogger fan .. just like the first guy except one fan works good to.

Unhappy Great Idea but its actually kinda pointless

I looked and most good fans that are small like 2.5 or 3 inches are 20 bucks, if you get 2 which you'll probably need thats 40 bucks. Plus you need the wiring and the chance of butchering your mask. The reaseon its kinda pointless is cause most of the fans you can buy that fit into masks are 40 to 50 bucks and they fit in nice and snug without the battery case on the side. There even cheaper on eBay too. Not trying to be mean or anything, great idea and all but its the same price for people unlike you who cant just go to the stock room and take the stuff. Great idea though.

ok that would make alot of sense then but you still got the parts out of a stock room it would have ended up being 40-50 anyway.

so any more updates on which direction the air flow should be going?

1 fan: air in, or air out?
2 fans: both in, both out, alternating

2 fans: right next to eachother, 1 on either side of mask, one high one low?

I'm getting ready to do this to my VForce Armor, just for the fun of it.

Also, what about noise?
The one time I used a rental mask with a fan in it, it was real noisy!
Not like other people could hear me,
but I mean when it was on I felt like I couldn't hear people sneaking around the woods, like it would cover up leaves rustling, etc.
Are these 'brushless' computer fans quieter than the ones that come stock on masks?

My Nasty But Anti Fog Machine Of A Mask

i started with a scott vectra mask.. 2 computer fans from video cards fans .. a on/off switch a 9 volt connecter and so cords.. i cut two holes into the visor then took a plastic/ cardboard container and cut it up to make vents for the air to go threw then i hot guled the fans on and wired it all up and zip tied it all up then made a little batterie holder out of duck tape then zip tied that ot the side.. and it works great and its quiet except when my hair goes into the fan and creats fun.. and hurting ...

What I Started With

1 fan - air in.
2 fans - choice is yours but have at least one blowing in. Anywhere above the lens works, although in the center is preferable for even coverage.

The noise isn't a problem. You won't notice when you're playing.

Cost!

Prices vary from place to place & parts used to customize each fan mod but the cost shouldn't be ridiculous.

Mine was under $20 & i bought the main parts at Radio Shack (40mm cpu fan, 9v connectors, switch). Batteries, shrink tubing & electrical tape/zip ties can be found almost anywhere and any paintballer should already have 2 of those things at all times.

Of course, Froogle is your friend. I could've saved a few bucks doing that instead.

Also, 40 mm is too big for VForces & JTs without extensive mask manipulation & creativity. Search for 25mm fans (you'll need at least 2 because of the size).

Plus all the staff will be watching because they have nothing else to do since u are the only one in the store due to their major high prices on every common part and even higher prices on rare parts.

I am not big into wiring, but 2 5 volt fans in series will run off a 9 volt battery? Or does it need 10 volts?
Thanks,
James

I think it will run, just slower.

I hear the home-rigged fans are quieter, but how about the bought fans? Do they do the job just as good?
