Fix is cheaper than replace!

I’m constantly knocking my fans off the wall. This time it’s snapped the plastic band that goes around both wind screens. I could put it on with wire. I’ve done that before. It’s a pain in the ass however. every time I do a changeover, I have to take everything apart. So I didn’t want to give up my easy plastic ring. Never fear! The only Christmas and birthday presents. I get our tools. So plastic welder once again to the rescue. You can use a plastic welder on so many things in the grow. The more the world is made of plastic… The summer I also fixed internal plastic parts for my dehumidifier. It is a large expensive dehumidifier, so I was extremely thrilled that this was working so well. If y’all don’t want to save money, then why do you even grow?

    I’m with ya there sista. I do my best to fix before I buy.
    Had a grow bud oscillating fan. We all know they had a bad rep there for a while. I got 1 any way 40$. It shit on me. They honored the warranty. I thought fuck it I’ll open it up. Easy fix,they pinched the powering an I was cut as a result.inre wired it an it’s still running 3 years later. If it’s in my scope of knowledge,,it’s on.
