Did you put the Alum-a-damper abs print on Thingiverse? I have a printer on its way to me and my stupid large Adapt-a blower is starting to have problems opening and closing. I'm wondering if it is the extra large rotary plate with the smaller servo, or just the servo dieing.

I had to scale the top rotating cover down in slicer & reprint because it was too thick and dragging on the case for me. Mine looked like a slow or dying servo when that happened.

I built one of these a couple of years ago and I love it. I only have an 18" WSM so the 6.7CFM fan works great. I am now building a HM and Adapt-A-Damper for a friend who has just ordered a 22" WSM. I see on the first page that there is a version on Thingiverse designed for a 15CFM. My question is for the guys who have a 22", is the original spec Delta fan (6.7CFM) good enough or do you find yourself needing a bigger fan?

That 15cmf fan is because of me, and I think I might be the only one running one. It was a blower from a different setup that I had and was more of less working. It is over kill UNLESS you really need a rippin hot fire. Normally my fan runs at less than 15-20%. The only time I max it out is at start-up and when I’m doing a spatchcock turkey for thanksgiving and I want to run at 375ish.

Nope, I’m wrong. Looks like a few people run them. Just not sure about needing it on a 22”.
