Overhead fans
« on: June 26, 2017, 05:04:11 PM »
You know - the rubber bladed ones that hang over your head and could still deliver a crippling hit  ;D  Like so many others, mine have gotten cracked and broken, but I'd still like to re-install those for nostalgia reasons more than anything else. Has anyone found suitable replacements for those units?

eep... I'm not to that point with my UV yet. 

I thought those things were just in mine...  I remember units like that being in school buses for the driver when I was a kid...  ??

 ;D I remember the school bus units. IIRC they were metal with a metal cage on them!

This site has some that seem similar.

I'm probably going to just mount little new plastic fans in mine when I get to that stage.  As I recall, I think my rig has 1 and a 1/2 of those fan setups...  and I don't even know if the complete one even works..

They're all eBay links, but that's ok - there are our rubber bladed units! A tad on the expensive side, but might be worth it to have a spare motor and a set of blades...
