This came to my mind lately, as we are doing so much in the fan restoration field, yet many do not know the milestones that actually brought to actual high quality levels of our projects... so, time to fix it! Smile

I added my own projects, along others that I remember; still, there are A LOT of "firsts" to add; hope you will all chime in and help to update this thread!
