Air Sled Appliance Mover!!!
#3
Hi All,

I've been a bit busy, but I have a quick update. The hose arrived, the Y Adapter is printed, and the new pieces are all installed.

I even have pictures, but I don't have time to post them right now Smile.

Excellent news - the modifications dramatically improve air flow to the feet, and hence the lifting power.

The dryer now leaps off the ground when the leaf blower is turned on Smile.

In addition, I tried it with my washer (which I assure you is _quite_ heavy). Positive but mixed results - I was able to move the washer! However, the device did not lift the washer completely off the ground. I had to move one side at a time using the built-in handles on the washer. But I moved it by myself!

With a little help from my wife (one hand on each side), we easily slid the washer out and back.

Next up, experimenting with the holes on the bottom, to see if we can maximize the lift just a bit more, while still letting enough air out to form the low friction cushion.

More to follow.

If anyone is interested in more information on how this was made - dimensions, materials and so forth - feel free to post here. The youtube videos are seeing a small amount of traffic, but I can't tell if anyone is really interested - so, speak up if you're curious Smile.

Stan
