I purchased this fan at a flea market.  Upon examination I find there is no oscillator drive shaft slot inside the hub, only a small round hole where there would be slot.  This fan must have been used on a non oscillating model.  Any suggestions how to make this work on an Emerson oscillator fan?

Think it's a brass knob threaded on that adjustment

Emerson Adjustment Collar with set shoulder screw - the brass nut at end is what you need?

I believe that slotted piece must be missing. I have recently learned that is a separate piece from the blade hub. You might be able to find a steel blade set and rob the piece from it.

Thanks for the info Mark.  I to, have been told that it is a separate piece and is threaded into the hub.  I have another blade  with the slotted piece and have tried to remove it but cannot get it to move at all.  I'll try soaking  it in penetrating  oil longer and also applying heat.  I would like to hear from anyone who has removed ths piece.

Sorry about no pictures David.  I don't think I can get a good pic of the piece I am talking about as it is at the inside bottom of an Emerson fan blade hub.   Another member said he as heard that the slotted plate is a separate part and I have heard that it is threaded into the hub.  I have tried to remove one but no luck so far.

Set your hub with threaded portion upward and pour in lacquer thinner to allow a good soak over night to break down grease. Clean it out well with q-tips. Normal threading unscrews by turning left.
