thanks to all for advice so far on blades balancing, fan blade weight
placement, etc. this fan deal "ain't over yet"
I put up a small site with some pretty good pix of this one-man-alone
ceiling-fan install job "in progress", including shots of some of the
stuff I made to hang the fan from, the jacking and cribbing involved to
get this monster up nine feet in the air by myslf, some of the obstacles
I ran into along the way, the weights I cast to balance the blades, etc
guys that've responded to my "blade weights and balance points" question
are especially gonna wanna see the last two or three shots at the site...
oh yeah-there's a rub: the weights I made might not be useable in their
neccessary "balance point/center of gravity" locations (see last few pix
and their captions)
again, guys, I appreciate your help/thanks again

because the nav links and captions are BELOW the big images.
to reply, please remove the "weird stuff" from my email address. thanks.
