Got the idea from a friend. So i started making up my own. Take a box(whatever), put a fan at one end, some ice (what have you) and blow air across it.
Here's my rendition.

I knew a local guy that had one of those evaporative window coolers he displayed with his car. claimed he bought it California when he lived there and they used to load it with dry ice. Said it worked fairly well when you were moving and not at all sitting still.

I'll be loading this with 3 2.5 liter frozen jugs and a couple half gallon milk jugs! Should cool me down some!
I agree with the frozen jugs. I first thought that just ice in a humid area like mine would just make my shop more humid. Great idea.

I ain't worried about humidity as we already have that. If it blows cooler air, then I'm happy!

I have an idea I'm going to try out, I would like to solar power a shallow water pump. Well water in my area is around 50 degrees I want to set up a recirculating system using well water thru a coil enclosed in a insulated sheet metal duct with a solar powered fan inside. The spent water will be sent back to the ground via a vertical French drain next to the well point pipe and cool my insulated garage the plans are in the works.

Another idea, where a solar powered recirculating pump can be incorporated in the system, cool well water, a automotive, truck, whatever, radiator in the system and solar powered fan blowing air through it.
