Thread: A fan in your hat

  1. #1

    A fan in your hat

    If you wear glasses you will know how they steam up at the worst moment I have tried all sorts of stuff on them but nothing seems to work, until now.

    A small computer fan, the sort used to cool the processer blows a steady draught over my glasses and keeps them steam free, I use a 5V fan on a 4xAA batterypack I have extended the wires and put a battery clip on the end, just clip on the battery for simple on off control, you may well laugh but it works! keeps you cool too.

    Once you have the steamy glasses sorted you can then do this with your midge net

ID:	1627 Glue a pair of old glasses to the net and cut holes in to see through, the hat with the fan is under the net. If you have proper midges you will know that nothing is too much to keep them off.
    ps cover the net with repellant so they don't bite you through it.

    What the............??????? Is it April the 1st?

    Go to a motorbike accessories shop or look on the net for visor anti misting solution. Spread some across your glasses and allow it to dry - sorted.

    I tried the anti mist without much success, which brand do you use? as to the noise it's pretty quiet, if you think the noise will be worse than the midges you don't have proper midges you can't wipe them off fast enough with both hands where I stalk.

    The fan is inside the net so it does not suck in midges, go ahead and laugh I will be sitting nice and comforable while the midges have a good chew at you.Don't knock until you have tried it.

    Go ahead and mount a TV screen on the bottom of the ballcap flap while you're at it.

    The inside of a motorbike helmet will mist up alot quicker than any set of glasses whilst outside - did you use the right stuff? If you can't get any then just spread raw fairy liquid on the lenses. Good until it starts to rain.
