    I think it's been at least a week since I've seen a new post - and people are reasonably free to be smartasses here, so what gives?

    Owch!

    If you have the capability, I'd go through and pin it - then weld the seam and the pins in place. The trouble is going to be drilling through the slug that slips inside to take the pins,...

    Looking for muffin fans...

    But NOT the typical 12VDC units. I'd like to find them in 5VDC or 6VDC - maybe 3VDC, but 5 or 6 will be easier for me to work with.
