Kiln vent

Ok, after much labored thought and research about how to vent my kiln without spending 3 to 4 hundred dollars, I've come up with this design. Simple and very very cheap! The fan I found at an electronics surplus store for $17.95 and I just had to try this telescoping dryer duct at $14.27 from lowes. I put a couple of legs to stablize it under the holes I drilled in the floor of kiln and hold it just far enough away to get enough fresh air to mix in with the kiln fumes. I'll be venting it out the side of the porch, to my wives dismay I'll have to cut a small hole. Now call me crazy, but I think it just might work. I'll be firing again soon so, cross your fingers.
