John Fengel Posted March 14 Share Posted March 14 A few years ago, I used to work on fans for a gentleman. He would usually come by every month or so with a fan he had found and it needed a little work like Head Wires, new grease in Oscillator, etc. Anyway, one day he shows up with a couple of fans he had found and wanted fixed up. Along with the fans he had a box and he told me I could have it but, he explained, it's just a fan in pieces. When he left I opened the box and found this all brass GE Oscillator. The only things wrong were it had a small chip out of the Oscillator Housing and it was missing 2 Cage Struts. Since the Rear Housing was Pot Metal I assumed I could just swap it out but quickly found out a regular Rear Housing wouldn't fit so I ended up repairing it with JB Weld. In the meantime, he found the 2 Struts in his barn so I had a complete fan. I put it together and the pictures show the results. I did paint the Rear Housing rather than leave bare. I had to balance the Blade and polish it up but that was all. The fan is a 3 speed and you can tell the 3 speeds although there isn't a lot of difference between the speeds. As you can see the Oscillator is a continuous type. Some pictures below, although they are not the best. John 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
