Does not matter if its a more expensive house fan, tripod fan or box fan the result is the same, not enough airflow. Is there a way to modify the fan blades so it pushes more air? I sit 36 inches from it and i cant feel it.
IF you can bend the fan blades to be at a sharper angle to the airflow, and IF the blades will still clear their cage, and IF the motor will continue to drive that heavier load without burning out, then perhaps so. I'd look for something better, perhaps the Vornado mentioned above.Is there a way to modify the fan blades so it pushes more air?
I have that Vornado fan and it blows plenty of air on me from 3 feet away and more.I would try this one. I had one for years. It just died 2 days ago. It has the most forceful, focused air stream I have ever felt from a fan even twice its size. I just ordered another one. They have bigger ones. Vornado may not last forever but I have found NOTHING that moves air like they do. Vornado 133 7 in. Compact Whole Room Air Circulator Table Fan-CR1-0221-06 - The Home Depot
