Cooling fan protector

In my scrap box I found an old expanded metal, so I made an easy fan protector for the cooling tray. I bought my R1V1 second hand, but was surprised this wasn’t included.

Nice. I use bit of stainless steel screen. Now the foam doesn’t ever rub the fan blades.

Just stumbled into this thread. @damon, is that same / similar type of material as window screen? Although I think what I have spare are fiberglass or aluminum window screen.

No, not like most window screen. This is stainless steel, which should be easier to keep clean, I think.
