Simply stick the suction side of a leaf blower on the pipe outside
And let er- RIP
I'm really interested in this method. Could this be done with the fire still burning in the stoker as long as I'm really fast. I would have 2 other people helping me.
I would do it like this.
1.) I'll have the power venter cover off.
2.) I'll tell the person right inside to turn the power venter off or i would think better yet turn it off & unplug it.
3.) I'll have the 3rd person standing by with the leaf blower with it running ready to go.
4.) I quickly but carefully take the motor out of the power venter's piping and then start the suction while the 3rd person goes into the basement and closed off the barometric damper. (maybe even have it covered with foil.)
So does this sound relatively safe if it's done no more than 5 to 10 minutes?
