David Kilnapp Posted May 9 Share Posted May 9 (edited) Friends: Today I was notified by the local plating shop that I use that they had completed the stripping and replating of the cage, struts and blades of the 1905-1908 Dr. Max Levy fan. The fan is nearly complete except for the front and rear oilers. Recall that Darryl Hudson has the one original oiler in his possession for reproduction when he is feeling up to doing the job. The variable frequency drive in the video is programmed to run the fan at 42 cycles (Hz) and 150 volts. Note the long spin down time which is unusual (in my experience) for a brush fan. Rick Powell's japanne makes this fan every bit the elegant beauty that it once was. Edited May 9 by David Kilnapp 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
