      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Exaust fan

Recommended Posts

If you have a house and need an economic but very handy exaust fan, find an old computer, take the fan off the power supply.
They are 12volt, use very little power (out of your battery) and have a good CFM, and also very quiet (I suggest to wire them with your light switch, so they shut off when you leave).Of course you can use more than one for intake or exaust.

Also, take a peice of 4" lightweight PVC, starting at the floor put a 90 degree elbow, then run the pipe to about 6" from the ceiling, mount the comp fan on top and leave it run. It takes the hot air from the ceiling and brings it down to the floor. Helps keep the heat a little more even.

Dave, My buddy and I tried that on his 8x12. We built some chases into the walls and exhausted them under the benches and had 4" round grills to releive the air under the benches. while this worked great to have zero condensation under the benches, it didn't move enough air to keep the heat off the top. We added the pvc duct in a corner, used a 12 volt air conditioning t-stat so when it gets really hot on the ceiling the fan comes on untill the t-stat shuts it off. Works pretty good and doesn't draw many amps.

MNice,
Sounds cool, ah, or warm I guess smile.gif

I think I'd try a 2 inch tube in the wall with 90° elbows. The top elbow could be a 4 inch so a fan can be mounted on? (I don't know if they make a 4 inch to 2 inch 90°reducer)
A 4 inch tube might not fit in the wall.

Dave, We have tried 2" & 3", they just seem to small to get any CFM out of them. Keep in mind these fans do move air but are not strong enough to create any static pressure in this type of system. It ends up to be a lot of trial and error. Have fun.

I never did a lot with hooking those fans up to piping, but i did have one. I used some plastic dryer vent, they make different sizes of fans, and with the smaller one you can stretch the hose over the fan. It makes a little more noise then, but did move some air around.
