Quick and easy, nice and breezy
A box fan keeps air moving in my shop on hot days, but only at knee height unless I set the fan on a bench or tool top where it's always in the way. So in under an hour, I made this stand that lifts the fan and allows me to tilt it up or down as needed. I drilled a 1⁄4" hole centered on each side of the fan, inserted a carriage bolt from the inside, then added a washer between the fan and each leg.
