This fan will be cast in both steel and brass "Brass Ball" oscillator and "Steel Ball" oscillator.  I personally like them brass ball but will settle for balls of any type.

As for price difference...they will both the same...it just takes time for me to make the wax mold and fix blemishes.  Pricing will be around 300-350 once I figure how much shipping cost is.  This will include both the cover and gearbox...no...not selling separately and charging the outrageous price I see on fleebay.  "Version A" will be coming end of this month.  Lane...hope this helps.

For those missing the gears...I will make a silly attempt to get them casted in bronze...hard stuff. Hope it works.

Hey Louis, I too am in need of a Type B gear box (single hole in bottom / thinner shaft diameter). Looks like I only need the bottom. Will you sell a bottom by itself, or do the gear boxes only come as a set? Could you post a picture of the pointer when you have time? Thanks.

I will be selling both bottom and top as a set (ensure the top and bottom sit properly). Pointers for the nonwings are ready. You can get them from George Durbin.

Thanks for the quick response Louis! Here's my dilemma...I bought a brass kidney bottom about a year ago, but haven't started the restoration yet. After seeing this thread, I realized I didn't know there were Type A (2 holes) and Type B (1 hole) versions of the gear box. So, I checked what I bought versus what was on my fan, and of course, they are different. :cry:    My fan has the 1-hole Type B gearbox, but my new brass gearbox has 2 holes. If I was able to lay my hands on some Type B gears and shaft, would I be able to switch out the gears and use the 2-hole brass bottom I already bought? Or, is there more inconsistencies between the 2 versions?

No...The switch gear shaft is not interchangeable.  I have seen people modify the shaft switch hole with some other metal fittings....up to you.  I prefer one piece.  Now if you had version B and want to enlarge it...I say go for it.  Otherwise...long story...No.

Louis, looks like I asked my question the wrong way .... I meant to ask : If I were to locate some Type A (2-hole) gears/shaft (larger shaft), and fit them in the aftermarket brass Type A (2-hole) gearbox bottom I already have, would that work, or is there something else about a Type B fan that wouldn't work with the Type A gears/shaft sitting in a Type A gearbox?

It should work.  But I hear the gears are harder to locate and not everyone is willing to let them go.  They are waiting to locate intact boxes to insert them into.

There was an effort made prior by a non member.  Very cost prohibitive to say the least.  Please PM if successful and I will look to see which one I need.  Thank you for your efforts!
