Started taking the old girl apart, the shaft holding the motor to the base is a bit bent. Will need to address that, and the bearings are gone...

How do I go about removing the bent shaft? I don't want to damage anything.

 Paul Graves can reproduce the entire center piece for that fan base but it takes a lot of work , machining & time. Don't know where you would ever  find a good used one though...those parts are scarce.  :?   Admirable project though, to save another great fan from the scrapyard of history.  :up:

I spoke with Paul a few months ago when I got a busted-a$$ vane oscilator; I know that he is "The Man" on these. I just want to break it down, de-rust & clean it up as much as possible before I call in the pros.

I noticed that can of “fan lubricant “ on the bench. If I can read the label, I think it says “Natural Light”. Does that work well ?  I usually have some kind of lubricant handy when I’m in the shop. Lol. 

Glad to see you’re getting the old girl apart. Best of success on the restoration!

I posted pictures of the switch but forgot to ask my questions. Obviously, this needs dissasembly, painting, re-wiring, etc. Anything I should be carefull of taking it apart?

P.S. I was able to modify a cheap wrench and remove the shaft without damage to the casting. Shaft will obviously need replacing.
