    For all who asked details of my smoke machine.
    The case in the 1st photo I got from Maplin some years ago, I have also made some for other people
    using 3mm plastic card, and that works fine, or just buy a plastic lunch box and use that.
    You will need to secure the mister/fogger to the bottom of the case with silicon, and thread the leads through the side/top,then make a hole for the funnel, I use two different sizes to make it easier to fit in the boat.
    Next, a cheap! mini fan, and a 3volt source,you can see the 2x1.5v clip in the second photo, I find this is just right for pushing the steam out.
    Lastly, a source to change the voltage up from 12volt to 24volt, the working voltage of the mister/fogger.
    Make sure all seams are covered with silicon, as you can see by mine it doesn't have to be pretty to work, and only I see it!
    I have put a couple of Ebay links of the items I use,
    as you can see, it is quite inexpensive......so
    have a go, joe๐Ÿ˜

    btw..I use a 12volt 2.1ah, and on a full tank of water,(not full, as it won't work when it's full), I get 20mins steaming.If you need anymore info,
    just ask๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Hi Peter,
    Super little Tug.
    Your steam smoker works very well, I too would like more information on it and how you made it.
    Nice job well done.
