C-11 cooling fans
Slight problem with the fans. They *won't* run backwards :-(
So it is off to the auto store to see about getting some gasket
material as the fan that needs to go the other way for output was
hitting the casting. In retrospect I think I will make gaskets for
both so as to avoid any air leaks between the fan and the casting.
I think I will also skip all the fancy filtering and just use the
foam stuff it came with. Otherwise there is to much airflow
restriction. Except for the RTMC most of the places I go are pretty

I've been using these for 2 years now and didn't seen any dust
accumulation on the primary when I had it open the other week. Sure
it's not perfect; you need a HEPA type filter to be really confident,
but with muffin-type fans that's just not practical.
