I've had a number of inquiries again recently regarding fan availability.  I am planning another bulk purchase.  In order to gauge interest, and get an idea how many to order, please email me direct at k2cb@comcast.net  and I will add you to the list.  I expect delivery to be sometime mid November. Minimum 2 pieces. Based on an estimated quantity, I expect pricing to be somewhere close to the last time around, which was $42 a set ($21 each).  Postage via flat rate @$10 US, International shipping based on your qth.

See the entire contents of the link above to the original fan post.  It has all the info, and links to even more info.  These fans are exact replacements.  See the comments from those who have performed the procedure. I even went so far as to make sure they have the exact same connector, so as to make them plug and play.

HI Bret,


The order was placed on 11/11/19, as promised. However, same as the last time around, I ordered some extra units to have on hand, just in case. 

At the moment I have a handful that are unspoken for. The last time around they sold out prior to arrival, so if anyone needs fans, act now before they are all spoken for!

Email me direct for details.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!  Surprise!!! SANTA CLAUS ARRIVED EARLY!!!  

Guess what the brown truck dropped off today?


Due to some very fortunate circumstances, the order was able to be rushed in from overseas, and the fans arrived today!

I will do my best to get them boxed up over the weekend, and out in the mail Monday (work schedule permitting).

For those of you still considering a purchase, at this time I have a handful of sets unspoken for. Once they are gone, that's it!    There is no telling at this time if there will be sufficient future demand to place another bulk order. As some discovered, it's been almost a year since the last order, and a long wait..... so grab them while you can.
