My Craftmade 6 blade fan is over 20 years old and has what appears to be wood blades. They still don't droop.

Linares in Cabarete often sell KDK fans and accessories. KDK are ok, the motors are good, but the blades rust really quickly. After my third set of blades I upgraded and imported a bunch of ceiling fans from eBay that had plastic fans and LED lights. They are fantastic.
I've installed several fans with the metal blades. The first one was showing rust on the leading edge of the blades after about a year.
Since then, I used 2" wide, clear packing tape to cover the front edges of the blades on the other ones, and cleaned up the blades on the first one, repainted them and applied the tape. I'm curious to see if it helps.

I think a Domincan gave you this idea? Because it was suggested to me by a Dominican in the hardware store.
I'm curious to see if it works or just creates a moisture trapping area.
And if it unbalances the blades.
I had an idiot put a light kit on my KDK fan.
Looked good as he left and the fan was on 3 and light worked.
But as it was hot the next day I increased the fan speed and light intensity changed. It changed with each change of fan speed.
He had wired the led light to the fan control.
It was a simple fix.
I will not need help in the future for installing a light kit

You are correct. 99.5% of all Dominicans are Jabronis when it comes to work ability - honestly you often wonder how things get done. When you find someone who knows what they are doing, don't share becuase the person will get a big head, start over-charging and be unavailable.
