  1. Picked these up about a month ago... I assume the oil in these are the real deal and not safe?

  2. Turned out pretty good. Had issues with rotor making a loud thumping noise, so I replaced it with a 77646 rotor. Runs smooth now. I had some white paint so I painted it white with blue felt to match the badge.

  4. Picked this missing link at the local flea market. It was so unusual, that I couldn't leave it on the table. Am pretty sure the blade is a star rite, but the rest is a crap shoot. Anyones help would be greatly appreciated.

  8. I have not seen one like this before. I have a couple of the Barber Colman fans but I have not seen a Bakelite Westinghouse. I did a search on eBay and there were Pacemaker fans but none like this one. Any information about when these were made. Its running and is in very good condition and the only thing I am going to do to it is replace the cord and plug with a two wire cloth covered wire and oak bakelite style plug. Thanks for any info.

  18. So,so sorry to hear this news.Always enjoyed seeing Ronnie with you at the meets. He seemed to make himself right at home in the midst of a gaggle of fan nuts. We lift U up in prayer as you prepare to move forward, hoping that can include some fan gatherings in the future. Geoffrey & Linda Jean

  24. Steve, mine was a mall find on a trip across the US. It looked so clean and good condition so I plugged it into an outlet in the mall. No go. They wouldn't do better than the reasonable $95 so I took it back to the booth it was in. But I got to looking at the condition and did buy it. After I got home I looked closer as to why it wasn't running.. Oh, that's it?? One power cord lead had come loose from the thumbscrew holding it. It ran great.

  25. Mine would immediately clear out of the house, complete with the kids and dog, for the night whenever I baked capacitors in the oven. ๐Ÿคฃ She once asked me if capacitors could "explode". I honestly answered that YES they could explode IF they were installed backwards. All she heard was that "they could explode", and that was that! And no. She was not pleased at all with me baking items in her oven. Not at all. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  29. This Emerson fan really allows wild imaginations! This pedestal fan looks pretty cool though I would prefer an Emerson brass cage and a brass pedestal for mine!

  33. Also called a round back because of the gear box shape. The link screws on to make it oscillate continuously instead of having a place to tighten and engage the oscillator on top. The next model after that one has the same shape gearbox with an early star engagement.

  34. Trevor, Thanks for sharing the Western Union splice. I like that, especially for solid conductors. The key is a strong union while keeping a slim splice.

  35. The 19 and 21 would be same switch if looking for correctness. Some white and later painted black. 9โ€ have lots of variations of plates. The Northwind 450 was a dumping ground for excess 9โ€ plates until late in series when a simpler profile was designed and produced. Might find one there and replace nicrome plates with laminates/coil. On old forum posted how all the plates are fit interchangeable and think used 19645 base to photograph examples

  36. Another, Form AB, with original finish. So often someone removes the paint from the brass bell but GE painted them all the same color as the rest of the fan.

  37. Getting rid of the grease soaked in pot metal. I added water and dawn and nuked on high for 15 minutes. This is how I do it. The fumes won't kill you but your other significant might. Wait till she is asleep.

  38. Totally agree with Russ. I use Amsoil in everything I can. My truck, lawnmower, buffer, air tools, and even fans. Granted everything suggested above is better than what originally came in our fans, but since we are there, why not upgrade our lubricants to help our fans run more efficiently? I use the same oil as Russ, but I use a different grease. I chose this specific grade because it has better resistance to pound-out and high resistance to slinging off. But both are great options.

  43. If you can pin down for example an R&M 12" brass guard with and open center ring, all you would need is to modify some brass guard supports for it. Cool beans.
