A great example of a DC Emerson that I did about 15 years ago and never got reimbursed, never heard from the previous owner since.  Now it is anyone's that want to put it on their shelf for a modest adoption fee of SOLD... according to the new owners specs.  I tried to post this earlier, but probably shot it all out into hyperspace. 














































I planned on reviving my ebay account, but decided not to for a few of weeks, so maybe someone has room for one more fan on their shelf in the meantime.  The blade is near perfect original.

The oil cap on the front bearing is the only thing it is missing, other than a new owner that is.

Are the motors being separated from the base for shipping nowadays? I noticed a couple of times posters have mentioned that the ears have gotten broken off in shipment.

95% or more of the fans I ship are kept whole but I pack very differently than almost anyone else.  No breakage in over 100 fans packed and shipped this way including many 12 and 16" cast iron models.  I would not recommend this way to others unless they understand the forces put on a fan in shipping.

Look more at the later pages in the post as I have find tuned my method and even more since I last posted.

Each fan I pack is custom.   I use plywood as a base as well as hard styrofoam to strap the fans to.   The fans on the plank is held to the bottom of the box using angle hard styrofoam appliance corner protectors from my local appliance store dumpster.   All of my packing other than boxes and tape is scrounged for free.

Emerson step base fans are one challenge due to the wide flange of the base that can get a nasty chunk broken off of it.   Here's one I did.   After the last photo I added peanuts to fill the box.  When sealed NOTHING can more around at all.   I love the strapping tape; it will not tear like I always thought the duct and clear packing tape could have.  To cushion under the motor I use closed cell foam hollowed out with a knife to make room for the rear bearing or oscillation gearbox.   Any forces to the back of the motor are distributed to the strong parts of the casting.   Other materials can work also and I adapt for each fan and what I have on hand.   The tape "straps" are pulled very tight and soft thin foam is placed between the tape and the paint on the fan.   Note how the bottom of the base is held up away from the packing so it can't get any forces against it to break the bottom flange.

A chunk of soft but firm foam placed between blade hub and under cage badge will help keep the cage from getting pushed into the blade should that want to happen,  It has not happened on any of my fans shipped.Plan on at least two hours to pack this way.

Wow, thank You Steve!  I sent a few of the smaller fans this way and had no complaints.  That is some excellent advice.  I noticed in seeing a few fans in their original packing they were not disassembled.  One of those that I have sold to when asked about the insurance, he said that great packing is the best insurance.  We all know that the Post Office and UPS have more excuses for not paying claims than Carter has little Kidney pills.
