Re the core, I live in New Zealand, so Im looking at around $1100 for a heatercraft one once shipping is added etc and I kind of enjoy making things. I have a tig welder so will build a enclosure out of alloy and a old truck/car heater core. I can get access to heaps of cooling fans from servers/network switches from work so hope to use a few of them and end up spending somewhere around $2-300 for the whole thing. If I cant find a fan/s that will move enough air, I might look into buying a automotive blower.
Sounds like you'll do just fine. Post some pics of your fabrication process.
