I originally bought this fan for parts...now I am looking forward to getting the parts casted to complete the fan.  Side arm is replaced.  The original was a poor a poor fabrication.  I have the front plate, base, and gear shaft already made...only thing missing is a switch.  I do have one from the black DC ball ECK to help guide me.  Also...I like the brass screws much better...replaced all of the screws.  Bought the correct gauge and cut them with dremel...fun...lost track of time in the garage...forgot to eat dinner.  But totally worth it!










My other one finally got put back together.

Dan Nguyen made the struts and had made the comment that brass looks better...I totally agree.

I remember seeing that green Eck on ebay in South America. I think it was Argentina.

David...I recently saw "French Grey"...my jaws dropped and I was drooling.  That is a very nice color combination of brass and French Grey.  I am debating about the oscillating arm...I think I want to redo that arm in bronze along with the front cover and gear cover plate....just fantasizing.  The bronze does polish up like brass very well and is hard.

I also made these.  One of the Westinghouse Double Levers I bought was missing the oscillating arm.  Wax mold was done in a rush...I did not prime the original and sand...so it picked up all the imperfections including the casting numbers.
