So, I was super excited a couple of weeks ago to have won a bid on EBay for a fan that I've been looking for for a while - a 1904 half-ribbed base GE Pancake (Sorry if you were bidding against me.  I really wanted this one).  I was so excited as a matter of fact that it totally slipped my mind to provide shipping instructions to the seller.  Okay, who can see what's coming?  Did you guess that my beautiful Pancake got damaged by our supremely incompetent United States Postal Service?  If so, you're much more on the ball than I was.
Here's a picture of my cake:



First, yes I know that it has an Emerson cage on it.  That's no big deal.  I ordered the correct cage from Chad within 15 minutes of winning the bid.  As you can see, the blade got trashed.  The hub is really bent up, but I think I can straighten it.  May need to use some heat.  The wings are the real issue.  You can't really tell from this picture, but as you can image, they are pretty creased.

So... did anyone order extra pancake wings on the last wing order that they would be willing to sell so that I can get my pancake flying again?

If anyone has a nice blade assembly I will consider that as well.

Thanks,
---Darrell

If thats a brass Emerson open ring cage you should be able to get decent money for that. As long as there are no bends in the actual wings themselves I think that hub can be salvaged. I would send Nick Loos a pm with pic and see if he can fix them.

Hey Ted,

Thanks for the offer.  I may wind up taking you up on it, but first I'm going to take a shot at repairing it myself.  I've got a 2 ton arbor press and I've rewinged several other blades - even a few 6-wing cast hubs.  A fellow member has some spare repo wings that he's going to sell me, so we'll see how this goes.  In the event that I'm not satisfied with how it turns out, I may come calling.

If you do end up getting a cage or blade from Ted, you won't be dissapointed.
