Just finished this one up. Good runner. This fan was dissassembled completely. Every part, nut and bolt was cleaned, and polished or painted. Switch and all electrical has been reconditioned as needed to be safe and reliable.. Stator removed, new headwire, new cord and plug.  Cord has been whipped by the plug.  All bearing surfaces and gearbox have been cleaned and relubed. 

All cast iron and cage were bead blasted, primed and repainted.  All hardware has been polished and clear coated.  Blade and other brass has been polished to a mirror shine. 


Badge was restored with new background paint and polished. New oil wicks and base felt. 

Photos make the paint look lighter than it is.  The first pic most resembles the paint.  It’s the proper very dark green (almost black in the right light) as original.


This fan runs on all speeds and oscillates as it should. If you missed out on one of my past brass bells, here you go!  
SOLD, THANKS! 

Please PM me with interest or questions. 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys, that one didn’t last long.  A few folks had quick interest. But someone pulled the trigger quickly. If anyone missed out again  I have another one I’ll be starting in the next week or so. It’ll look just like that one.
