That adjusts the full opening and closing temps, but not the amount of air 
that gets thru. I thought you were wanting more air, not just more air at 
intermediate temps.

There was a thread on thesamba about taking these apart a few years ago. 
Interesting, but more work than most of us would ever want to go thru. I was 
under the impression that the steel lip that had to be uncurled was really 
thick and strong; seemed like something that would fight you all the way. I 
didn't remember that there was an adjustment inside.

I've never tried to open one. It just seemed like one of those things that you'd 
have to almost destroy to get it apart.
