Hello fellow fan collectors and restoration gurus! I haven't been on here in a while and don't remember a thread showing off everyone's restorations in one central location. So let's see 'em! Post whatever you're proud of! I'll post some later...

It ain't pretty but it is not finished. I started with just a stump. GE 60561 DC 3 star.

Hey Josh!Nice to hear from you. 
This was only a partial restoration, and I can't really take credit for much of the work but I thought you might enjoy seeing this fan......

Before too long, I'll have an Emerson Lever Oscillator and a Trojan 5310 to show, but for now, these will have to do. I guess the 10" is not technically restored as it still has all of it's original paint. Both have my stainless steel front guards on them.

Emerson Silver Swans, 10 and 12 inch models.



Cheers,
Bill

Where's Kimbo? And Mr. May? Surely Steveo has some incredibly rare fans he's restored but kept from the public.

OK Josh, here is my latest and best un-restoration.   I can say that it makes a nice contrast to restored fans and a few might like their fans to look similar to this one.   It's not shiny so is easy on your eyes.  Sorry guys and gals, not a restored fan in my collection but I do have maybe a half dozen with the brass pollshed, see bottom photo.  That Westy tank came to me off eBay all cleaned up but I did do a little better job polishing the blade and really like the look on this fan.
Josh, since you were hear last time the forum has given us a good way to upload many photos per post.   Have you figured it out yet?  Very handy!!

Steve, no! I haven't figured it out. I do this from my phone so not sure if it works. I have a 3 star I just restored but the pics continuously show up sideways. 😵. I LOVE the peerless!! I'm so glad you found it and added to your collection Steve! Now help me figure out this photo crap.
