    Doran 400 CFM darkroom fan arrived with rough, uneven louvers

    Just unboxed this fan to find many of the louvers with rough, uneven edges. Besides expecting more for $200, I wonder if this will make the louvers less effective at blocking light? (Interestingly, the 12x24 Doran Louver I bought for passive air in-take has smooth, even-edged louvers!)

    Anyone else notice this on the Doran fan? Is this the nature of this all-plastic beastie? Or should I return it and try again?

    Or maybe this is an opportunity to reconsider the choice of fan, and opt for something different, like the Panasonic mentioned in a previous post? I have an existing window over the soon-to-be-sink area, and would need to be able to mount the fan there. Would also appreciate thoughts on how to make a consumer brand fan light-tight (one advantage of the Doran).

    Thanks in advance for your help! I appreciate everyone’s time!
