    Portable Chiller

    Buddy and I decided to make use of some junk around the shop. Made this portable chilled water system out of a recovery machine. Works nice, blew 49F air when the picture was taking. I think it would work great on a camping trip at a state park or something! Or maybe in the garage?

    Good idea. I think it would rapidly consume the ice in the water reservoir though.

    How about hooking it up to a larger cooler full of ice?
    You can't learn a thing with your mouth open.

    Yeah, like the beer cooler. Wait... thats not a good idea.

    Cool little set up, whats your approximation on the CFM's? Does it have the ability to cool a room?

    Who gives! LOL As long as it cools me, I don't care about the whole tent! Actually, I ain't messing with that on a camping trip. We just had fun playing around with junk!
