whooohhhh... I got my peltier chip today and I'm putting mine together right now. I just need a clamp. Right now I'm testing it I have it upside down I just put the 3racing heatsink on top with a motor clamp on it. So far so good I only have it on for couple of minutes. I'll live it on for a while let see what will happen. To bad I don't have a temp gun........

The peltier chip I got only pulls about 3.5 amps.....

So Will computer CPU Fan work for this application?

Like these?

Than if so, Then I thought I could maybe bend a copper sheet over the motor to make a clamp of some sort.

Well guys it did what it suppose to do. But I guess I'm going with the 2 peltier chip on the next one I'm going to built. This one will do the trick for now it chilled the motor really good I left the motor for about 15 minutes. Now I just need to go get some copper clamp probably it will work a lot better.

The heat sink from radioshacks sucks and they are too small. Go to some local computer store they got some better heatsink. and those copper sheet your talking you can't really bent those they have thin layer of plastic right on the middle you will break it, I know this co'z I've since those just today at radioshacks.

I'm thinking of getting one of those but it's hard to find a heat sink that will accomodate all the heat it will generate. I've seen one of those on ebay.

I found a clamp from integy here's the link:

How can you make a peltier work more efficient?

You know, it would help if you had a motor case (can) machined from aluminum. It would be best to have a flat block designed as the top surface. This way you could apply the freeze to the block and that will hold the cold longer. Hmmm, may be I should start making custom aluminum motor cases!


I could make a bunch of these:
