I got a 19666 today. I needs a few parts but runs great and the cast iron blade hub is in great shape. As far as I can tell it need a cage, 3 struts, and 3 acorn nuts. I am just happy the blade isn't broken.

Just a little history on this. I asked him where he found this fan and he told me he brought it with him from Illinois. So it is not a Florida fan which could account for how nice the paint and the insides of it are. He is a snow bird so I am real happy he brought it with him. He could have just as easily sold it while he was up there.

Congrats on finding a 19666, Don!
The cage situation is best handled by looking for a 12" brass cage with 646(longer) struts. Then cut and shape to fit. $100 for a set of big motor brass struts on AFP is really steep.

These fans can be money pits if not careful. O_o

You're getting up there Don. Still, it's a cast hub 6 wing Emerson. Enjoy it.

Don, I thought about snagging that fan because I have the cage and struts (646) many times over.  The struts may take some skills to adapt as I think they have a kink to them.   Finding that on ebay within driving distance must have been a real treat.   I can check out my pile and see whether or not I need all those cages if you'd like me to.

Don, 

What is in your favor is you have the earlier version(14-16) prior to the motor handle being implemented in 1917. Being patient for parts is tough, but down the road those parts may pop up to fit the budget. The big motor disadvantage is the harder to find short brass struts. The last transitional 19666 model had steel struts and guard.

From what I have been seeing on here in the search option these sell for well over $500. He actually gave me a pretty good deal and I think I will have about that or less in it if I am patient and find parts at a good price.
