    I wouldn't mind a bigger size, just would like to get a good looking connector securely inside the Microdamper.
    It's a great design, except for the connection. Not gonna risk frying my HM using a phono jack. Wish he would rethink the RJ45...

    I used the bigger size model. Connected all the wire directly to each other which eliminated the use of a jack. Makes it easier. Just use shrink wrap to make sure the wire donít touch and short. Obviously this will require a bit of soldering. Hope that helps.

    Yeah the one I have I just soldered the ethernet cable directly to the blower and servo wires and then put a zip tie on it for strain relief and a rubber grommet. Its been sitting outside for 2 years now and still works perfectly.

    Yeah, Bryan. Now that I think about it... you might have directed me to do this a few years back.

    Does anyone happen to have the original design files? I would like to make some tweaks to the design.

    Hi Bryan,

    Did you modify the original design to accept 4 screws to hold the fan down? Or are you just using self tapping wood screws to hold the fan down? I'm tossing in between making this micro damper or the adapt-a-damper and the microdamper is very compelling since the prints are much less (both time and money wise).
