The japan on the motor and oscillator is pretty excellent. Only a few chips on the front face that the blade hides anyway

The bakelite cord bushings are even still in good condition. Those are almost always chewed up or gone. It just needs the levers for the oscillator and it will be back to original  :up:

I have the pie crust base soaking in white vinegar right now. The paint on the base is not going to be as nice as the motor.

Now I have the motor fairly well serviced. I pulled the rotor and spray cleaned the centrifugal switch with QD electric cleaner. I also cleaned the bearing surfaces and gave it some zoom spout and a dab of red wolf's head grease for the gears. Runs like an emerson  :up: :up:

Nice, very difficult blade to find, most are gone and replaced with a later blade.

I got the base cleaned up. It's just missing a little paint near the bottom.  :D

Does the white vinegar eat away at the rust also? Nice job

That cleaned up well. Did you spray a clear of some kind on the bare metal?

I had the blade off today while cleaning the paint. I had not noticed the pat date stamped on it before

Nice fan Charles. I had a 11648 but I sold it to make another fan purchase. I will get another one eventually. I just love the big 16" cast and brass blade.
