I tweaked the fan mount from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:104688

I love it but added some usefull mods:
-Easy mount without fully unscrew the extruder screws.
-Added a housing for the nut M3
-Added a little more gap between mobile bracket.

*5/Dec/2013 Added link to more compatible fan ducts.

*27/Nov/2013 Added a beter fan duct for my J-head MKV (duct1.stl)
See pictures: PLA position (cold PLA and HotEnd) and ABS position (cold HotEnd)

compatible also with these fan ducts:





-I printed it with PLA, on the the STL position, without any support type.
-Heat a M3 nut and put it into M3 housing. Use a M3x20 or larger screw for it.
-Fix to the extruder body with 2 M4x20 or larger screws.
-For 40x40x10mm fan i am using 4 M3x10 screws without nuts needled (screw directly to plastic)

NOTE: after several ABS prints the support deform due to heat. I've reprinted in ABS :)
