Blacktooth Air Assist Upgrade

Blacktooth Air Assist Upgrade

Hello! I've been lurking for a while, this is my first post. I wanted to share an upgrade to the blacktooth that I think went particularly well.

Obviously, I found the stock air assist lacking. Most air pumps I found online were also quite expensive. The cheapest one I could find (with output >50 L/min) was this: http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00QI8KPHQ/ref= ... 00_TE_item

On receipt, I found that it vibrated a lot. So much so that I was worried that it would shake components loose and eventually destroy the laser cutter. As such, I built a very successful and cheap vibration damping system out of 4 bungee cords:

It's very quiet now, probably no louder than the extraction fan!
