I've looked around a bit at the big box stores for a quick fix, but I'm stumped right now. I want to install a ceiling fan in the dining room and need to find a way to mount it to the existing mount. I didn't have a fan mount installed before the ceiling drywall went in partly because I'm stupid and partly because there was already a large chandelier installed so I knew it could hold the weight.
A single large threaded hollow bolt is what is on there now. It is about 1/2 inch thick and is mounted into the joists on both sides so strong enough. I need to know how to convert this old type mount into what can be used for a modern fan. Any converters or adapters? Thanks.
Edit: I think the existing mount is called a 3/4" round tube mounting stem.
