I saw this Emerson Trojan fan in a store in Canada  and he is asking an outrageous price of $490 USD because the fan is completely missing the switch assembly underneath for starters It is on consignment so the guy did not know much about it What is a good price ? I was thinking in the range of $200-250 USD The only concern I have is that parts are going to be expensive and hard to find Am I correct?

I would get it, even if you have to spend $200 on a switch you would still be doing good.   You should be able to find a comparable Emerson switch to work.  You would most likely have to rewind it so you would have a couple speeds like the original.

I agree with everyone else, a great price for a fan of that rarity even missing the switch. I would buy it in a heartbeat, even if I had to put it on credit!  :up:

I hope you can nab this fan Cam.  There are so many talented folks in the afca that can help complete it and you'll still be able to double your money should you call King's X.   The nature of this discovery is very interesting and rare these days.  Canada, Montana, it must be breathtakingly beautiful in your back yard.  Please keep us posted and good luck.

You can reproduce a switch for it.  The principle of the function of the switch is not rocket science.  :D

I am sorry, I don't have a switch to spare. I don't reproduce switches.  Rather than PM me, post in the BST for a switch, or seek help from one of the fan restoration artisans. With some of these fans you have to be very patient getting the parts you need. Good Luck!

Try Chad Baker (Antiquefanparts.com) for the missing switch, wing bolts and the missing acorn nuts. That's a spectacular find! Outstanding!

Thanks Chris that helps me out a lot I was wondering why Emerson would not make a switch that could be used for several models I would think a 1510 switch would be easier to find

Worst case a 11646, 19646 etc switch can be mounted and choke wound to correlate to your six pole motor.

Congratulations on a great buy.  I’m looking for this exact model.  There is one on eBay that is completely restored and they are asking $1200.
