    You have to push hard into the fan and they make there own thread.

    You just need to push harder.

    A big chinky screwdriver with the largest head possible will work well. I always used to round out the heads of the screws and used to end up spending ages trying to get them out.

    Lay the fan down on the floor and screw directly downwards to make sure that the screws don't go in at an angle ;)

    Once you do it a few times it becomes easier.

    Using a Blue Tank to make holes seems a bit over the top and dangerous.

    I would use a screwdriver myself ! ;)

    Cheers,

    Nothing wrong with how it works now, has worked for decades so if it is not broke, why fix it?

    You'll need a hardened screwdriver though as cheap screwdrivers will either rip the screw head or the head of the screwdriver itself will buckle. Lay in on the floor, and put some weight on it guiding the screw in. When you come to screw it into your case, the thread will already have been made.
