Default High pressure blower ratings

Looking for high pressure blower on a aof arch I plan on building. If I buy a blower with no motor they are cheap on ebay but I cannot find specs for them anywhere. Thought they should have specs at different motor speeds listed somewhere. Also how do I size the blower and can I run auf/aof off the same blower?

Has anyone tried this style blower. I would be more inclined to restrict the air than control the motor.

sorry if I confused you Jake Mountain Man was talking about motor speeds and I believe restricting the air with a blast gate or redirecting it rather than speed control. I was also asking about if anyone has used these style blower because they will produce higher pressures.

Maybe I used wrong term for blower I am planning on using something like a 4c108 dayton blower. Can buy this model cheap without a motor but can't find specs for this blower. It has a 10 9/16" wheel on it. Is this the same type of blower others are using for aof?

Yes thats a high pressure blower and what you need for AOF. Look up the specs on a complete assembly at graingers and do as Haynes suggest and restrict air flow not regulate speed.
