This fan has been fully restored and is ready to run.
  Fan was fully disassembled. Every part cleaned and painted or polished.  Fan completely bead blasted to bare metal, all cast iron pits filled, and repainted with new PPG Urethane Auto Paint that was color matched to the pristine paint under the motor tag.  New cord, plug, headwire. All bearing surfaces cleaned and relubricated. New wicks. Switch reconditioned. Badge polished and repainted. New fiber washers and rotor properly shimmed. Stator checked and revarnished. Test run for an evening.


 This was made during WWI and therefore has the original steel blade.  I priced it $100 less than if it had a brass blade.  So if you’d like brass, you can easily acquire one for the difference.  


No detail has been left undone.  This is a beautiful 2 star and runs great! 


  Fan is now sold. Thanks to the buyer and all that had interest!
Please PM me if interested.Thanks for looking, Lane

The 2 star is still available despite a lot of interest and inquiries.  
This is color matched automotive paint and looks and runs great. I have a lot of hours in this one.  This one will remain in my collection if it doesn’t sell. 
I’ll help with shipping costs if that helps put those with interest over the edge.  


Cheers, 

Lane
