I wanted to modify my kneading machine. In fact it can work for at maximum 5 minutes, and then I have to let it cool for 20 minutes (it is a very cheap model), and it is a problem for me.
So I was thinking of adding a sort of cooling system, for instance a fan (like that used in motherboards).
I was thinking of removing the red "hat" of the machine and replacing it with a bigger hat, so that there will be space for the cooling system.
But I have the following questons:
1) Do you agree with me with the position of "cooling ports" from with the air will enter and exit (IN, OUT)?
2) How can I realize the bigger hat? Which material?
3) How can I connect the bigger hat to the machine?
4) I was thinking of doing this modification because it is a cheap model and because I think that the only problem of using it for more than 5 minutes is the excessive heat. So if we solve it with a proper cooling system, I can use it for instance for 20 minutes. Do you agree with me about this last statement?
No problems about the electrical supply of the fan because I will build an external supply circuit for it.
