OK, I'm not sure if I get this one George.Is that a Plastic Water Bottle someone made into a cover for a fan?

And actually George you can get many parts for our old fans at the local Ace Hardware, things like Screws, Washers, Setscrews, Fibre Washers, spacers, and even feet for the bases of the fans.

Just a little humor there Levi!

No Kovar that's a prison grade fan! Seeing as it has a see through cover! Remember that Prison grade TVs were see through so that prisoners couldn't stash weapons in them, well this fan could be used in a prison because prisoners couldn't stash stuff in it!

Hi Richard!

Wut Levi says is true! Many electronics in prison were required to be clear plastic for the reasons Levi said... I dunno if it is still a requirement or rules have changed... Maybe Annie and Rick could chime in here and clarify this for us...

Television for prisoners?


Why not "no television" so they
can reflect on their misdeeds
in the solitude of their cells?

Yep, they had TVs for prisoners, it was usually a reward for good behavior from what I've read. Also usually the TVs were in the mess halls or other common areas and they usually only watched news on them or certain types of tv shows like Andy Griffith or Mr.Ed or other shows like that, stuff that wasn't violent.
