When in doubt, it is usually best to remain silent, and be thought a fool,
rather than foolishly open ones mouth, and remove any doubt.

I'm sorry, what was I supposed to be observing :con:

22 - and I agree Aussie should get a refund since it's very biased :tong:

BTU - fans can turn in either direction (to blow forward) depending on the way each particular manufacturer chooses to wind the field and/or armature on an induction motor and/or which end of the armature shaft the blade is mounted on (as you're looking at it). There's varied options on other questions as well - so don't feel too badly :lol:

Yeah thanks EB.


Like that question about which hand is the Statue of Libery holding the torch, that would be like asking people from outside of Australia, near which town does a dog sit on the tuckerbox ,.... not really fair is it?

Google it, if I have raised your level of interest.
