IT’S ALIVE: my newest LeVelle Birdwing with slip shades and ornate housing that I just finished and hung.  I siliconed the slip shades in as they mount rather precariously – a “trick” a slip shade light restorer suggested thanks to help from an AFCA member - he put me in touch with the person.  There is a company that makes reproductions of this very slip shade but they run $150 EACH.  Anyhow, I re-wired the fan and put a new thrust bearing in it and left it with the original patina – it truly runs great. I know Tom, not your favorite type of fan but got to admit, is interesting.  I would be interested if any othe members have this fan.
