    Anyone make one of these? It's supposed to start getting hot here this weekend so think I'll try to make one.

    Not a bad idea. I don't have the right tools currently to build one. If I did I'd probably give it a go.

    I rocked a swamp cooler for awhile and I'm guessing the concept and results are similar. For me it kind of worked, but it really kicks up the humidity in the room and can exacerbate mold issues.

    This one was made with Dawn dish soap, which apparently does everything. What's good about the Dawn ice pak is you can mold it to fit. Like if you need to ice your knee.

    ?

    The most expensive tool in the vid was the drill, but you can probably do without that as well

    This was AC back in the day before freon. The first widely recognized use of it was for a US President that they rigged it for to fight his respiratory issues.

    Would only be practical if the fan and freezers electrical usages were less than a AC unit for the same BTU.

    It would take quite some time to do that without a drill.

    I lived in a shitty old apartment where my ac would quickly blow fuses, this looks like a more refined version of the swamp blower I would use.

    My folks have these tools already so I don't have to buy them and I live in an apartment where I don't really want to have a window ac unit.
