Bill,
I have a 27646 parts fan that has the 4347-1 base.  PM me if interested.

Do you also need any other parts?
  Motor grommet extension which is unique to the 27XXX's.
  Base pan with felt bottom retainer ring which is unique to the 27XXX's.      Green felt which is proper for the 27XXX.
  Appropriate gear housing which is unique to the 21, 24, and 27XXX's.
  Speed control and/or parts.  
  Speed control rebuild.

Steve Stephens wrote: I will guess that both bases are identical and made with pattern number 4347 with the only difference being that Emerson had at least two separate patterns for the same piece with numbers 1 and 2, a common practice when more than one pattern existed for the same item.

Do you think it could have anything to do with the speed positions being numbered 1,2,3 or 3,2,1?  I have seen them both ways, and Bill's is numbered 3,2,1.

Russ, I’m glad to be proven wrong there! That’s an outstanding repair. :shock:

I found a local welder comfortable working on cast iron and the results are very good.  He cut a V groove along the crack and used silicon bronze rod to fill it.  I’m still working on refining things with a Dremel but feeling very positive that I will be able to keep the fan all original.  I did not plan to repaint everything and need to decide how to cover the repair to best match the rest of the finish.   Advice welcome.

That's how I repair them. It is usually referred to as "brazing" but more accurately bronze welding. Nickel silver rod is also used, which ironically has very little nickel and no silver at all, and is also considered "soldering" as is brazing.

Cheers,
Bill

You could get the base powder coated or sent it to Rick Powell to get japanned.

To be specific, I’m looking for advice on how to refinish the base but to make it look “old” to match the rest of the fan.
