    Default I need to buy a new fan for my Shopbot control box

    I need to buy a new fan for my Shopbot control box. The specs on the current one are 12V, .14 A. I've been able to find 12 V, .12 A and .15 A.
    Does the difference in Amps matter or will either of these be OK?

    Thanks, Phil

    Both are so close as to make no practical difference. It's the CFM that matters most, and of course the volts. Get the higher amps for more flow. Noise hardly matters in a SB controller.

    Other considerations: Hole position and diameter. You can pretty much tie wrap a fan to the case if you can't get the right hole pattern.
