So we've all come across a Pancake with a few missing pieces. 5 years ago when I first joined AFcA the first GE Pancake I acquired was just a stump. With the help of Kim, Ron Jefer, Ted Kaczor, Mike Petree and others I was able to bring it back  to original glory.
Over the years I've become as interested in fabricating missing parts as I have with collecting. That being said I have some surplus laying around that I would like to offer for sale.

See picture below:


I have available Pointers, pointer holders, terminal insulators, switch swipers, large and small knobs, restored and new motor coils, late steel trunnion bolts, switch springs, and center contacts.


Pricing is as follows:


Terminal Insulaters $15/ea or $25/pair
Pointer Holders $30
Pointers $35
Knobs $35 or $25 each if you order 5 or more
Coils $40 for restored and tested $45 newly wound
Springs $15
Center Contacts $30
Shoulder Bolts $15/pair
Bottom Swipers $20 each


If you need something else chances are I have it or can make it.


Thanks 
Gary

Seems like the Pancakes I have had all needed rewound and existing laminates stack were rusted, swollen, and just useless. Finding donor stator was a challenge.

May be worth looking into reproducing the stator stack of laminates.

If anyone has a blade assembly for a 1903, I need one. I have the GE cage and struts, but for some unknown reason it has a micarta Westy blade on it. I also need the whole switch/coil assembly as everything in the base is missing. It's complete, other than a few crucial parts!  :P

Gary,

I have an '05 that has something wrong with the switch but I haven't taken the time to diagnose it. I sure will now though because those parts look great!

I can reproduce the laminate stacks relatively easily. I do not have a press that could shape the shading poles though so I would need to get creative with that.
I got a quote once to cut a stack from electrical steel and coated and I want to say they wanted a few hundred to do it. Cost would probably go way down if we order 10-20 stacks. Don't see that high of a demand for those but may be surprised.

The switch project hit a bit of a road block back in July of 2016. If anyone would like to hear the crazy story about how I got tricked out of sending all my CAD files to Todd, then in sending him a big ole box full of parts, only to have him claim they never showed up and then cursing me out over email.. I would be happy to share this experience to protect others from these types of individuals. Plenty more pictures of the progress that was made. I have suspicions he is working to market these through another individual in the near future.. You heard it here first!

Just imagine what could have been! Let's all see if we can't talk me grumpy pants into coming off the switch bodies so that we can have a single source for full porcelain reproduction switches.  I won't hold my breath. If anyone else out in the fan world knows a thing or two about working with porcelain give me a shout. This project is going to get completed!

Anything ever happen on the switches? I need a few. Surprised some one would pull that, the Fan community seems pretty tight knit.

Hey Gary, still looking for a large knob. You have any left? If so I'll take one.
