Hello collectors,
Came across this fan as-is and wanted to dress it up a bit... anyone willing to fit her with a steel or brass blade reasonably priced; Also needing an osc. gear box cover, this looks to be similar size of previous and later Vortalex models, I could verify dimensions once I figure how it is removed. Much appreciated!

To remove the oscillator cover, remove the 2 screws holding the lid on, then unscrew the oscillator engagement knob all the way counterclockwise and the lid will come off. The knob/ shaft is not easily separated from the lid, so they should be swapped out together. 
Where the shaft separates, there is a keyed washer. Be sure to not lose it, as the oscillator will not function without it. 

Best of success finding the parts.

It looks like the top part of the gearbox itself has a large chip out of it and not just the gearbox cover.

I think you are correct Steve.  It looks like a chip tilting to the outside just aft of the screw.

Thank you all for your suggestions. Based on the likelihood of finding these two important parts vs. the fan’s value, it’s probably gonna have a long wait. Many thanks again.

I have a GE AOU from 1929 that has an intact Oscillator mechanism lid that I could sell you if you're interested, the fan was a Form AF2 which I wouldn't think the form number of the fan would matter as the AOUs were the same all throughout the fan's run.
The GE AOU I have I had bought to try and restore but the speed coil assembly was shot on it so its now just a parts fan so if you need any other parts for an AOU fan let me know and I can look though my parts and see what I have.

Also what size is your fan's blade? is it a 12" or a 16"? if its a 16" I have a 16" AOU Brass Blade I could sell you as well.

Just let me know.

Thanks, once I realized the switch and speed coil assembly on my fan was shot I kind of figured I might as well just use it as a parts fan because everything else on the fan was in decent shape yet minus the base and switch assembly which was severely water damaged, but every thing above the bottom of the base was still in good shape yet just very dirty and greasy.

I should have the parts as well. I can take a look tomorrow. Also that blade you have on there now went to fairly uncommon Polar Cub 16" fan.
