I thought we resolved this same issue for you on a post you made last October....

I responded to your wanted ad for a 37 fan, but you declined that, and said you had decided to make a spacer for the fan you already had, which is apparently a 33-36 fan. I'm sure many folks have done this in the past, but it seems to me finding a fan with the correct spacing hub would be a better option.
