hello, i'm a new member here. I'm having a problem with my fire fans.
They're the type that closes and opens and i have no control over it.
Plus, there's no spinning whole for my finger in case i want to spin them, and they feel a bit heavy.
Do you think i should get other ones or can i still learn on these?
Spinning them is a must to me, i'd hate to just wave them around :\

how long have you had them? i would learn on those (since you have them) and then buy new ones later. i think you CAN control the opening and closing you just dunno how to yet. also, if you know someone that welds maybe they can put a spinning hole on them for you

If you want to do spins, fans that dont lock open are pretty much impossible to control. Are you just starting fan work altogether? If so, I would definitely get some cheap static fans to start learning. It will give you a chance to learn the basics before adding in the element of opening and closing the tools.

Probably a better alternative is to figure out a method to strap/tape/tie the fans in the open position. What type of fans do you have? I forget all the different makers, but depending on the fan, Im sure there are different ways you could bind them open.
