It's looking so great so far that I believe it's almost cruel of you to tease us like this. It looks like something you'd set out to do from the beginning, not at all like a Plan B or cost-saving measure. AWESOME!
You made it fit right in! I used to have a mother-in-law that worked for Lowe's and I am very familiar with getting something cheap that is not what you wanted, but you can make it so. I'm curious if there's any change in the balance of it while spinning due to having added weight to the blades?
