A great thing to have in your shed or garage is some method of cooling down the space. Now I know in the UK we do not get a lot of hot weather, but in the summer months, inside a shed can get quite clammy. Something like a floor fan or a desktop fan does a very good job of quickly cooling down a warm space.
There are plenty of choices to be had but I like this new one from Tristar which is the ve-5970 model. This one is new to the UK market, but it will I believe become very popular. This is a good quality fan which operates off the UK standard voltage of 240 volts. It has a 35 watt motor so plenty of power there to quickly move air.
Tristar Retro Fan
The 3 speeds are 950, 1100 and 1300 revolutions per minute. It can cause an airflow of up to 2,149 cubic metres an hour and that is pretty high for a standard table fan.
It weighs around 3 kg and it measures 35 x 22.5 x 35 cm so a good size and yet not too big so that it will take up a whole lot of space. The diameter of the fan is 30 cm (1 foot). It is designed to sit on a table or a bench, but could also be used to sit on the floor if you prefer it down at that height. It has 3 speeds, oscillates, and comes with overheat protection.
It is also really quiet and that is something that I like to have in any fan. It also has a nice copper/gold look to it and for a shed or garage I like that look and feel.
To complete this fan it also comes with a useful handle and has feet that allow it to stand up easily. This is classed as a retro style look and feel and it certainly has that appeal to it.
