After I intoduced and offer replacement cast iron hub assemblies for 12" Emerson model Emerson fans,  some of our members asked and encouraged me to expand my offering of hub assemblies to include the larger size 16 inch models.  I acquired three style of hubs to be made into casting patterns and contacted the foundry and had castings made early this spring.  About a month ago i received the castings and began to tool up to machine them.  About the same time I ordered the castings, and in parallel, I had coresponding brass blades made up. 

At this time I am now ready to consider taking orders from anyone that may be in need of a 16 inch 4-wing hub assembly.  Until my inventory of materials run short, I am offering these hub assemblies in three styles which include the one for the stationary non oscillating fans with the extra rib on the back of the cast arms,  second style for oscillating models which it round nosed and non ribbed, and a third style for Trojan models with .367" shaft with "pie shaped" wings or for DC models with .375" shaft bore with the standard blades.

The charge for any of these three style hub assemblies is $325.00 plus $25.00 shipping in the U.S. I balance and true these up before shipping and Nikolas clearcoat the blades unless the buyer prefers no added coating.  Delivery will depend on the amount of work in my shop at the time an assembly is ordered.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

Thanks to everyone that has trusted me in my work.

Those look awesome! I wish you had enough interest for the ones for the 8 blade adjustable fan!

Jerry,

Every time I see another example of your work it just makes me hate myself a little bit more!  You do beautiful work.

Agree with Geoff's comments. Such an asset to the hobby to be able to correctly resurrect so many tough 16" Emerson and Trojan fans.

Great job Jerry as usual!!

Recieved my 16" Bravi Bladeset and couldn't be happier! It is the latest Oscillator hub style! Great seating for the Oscillator rod with no play. Threading is excellent as well! Lots of work involved in these!




And the blade in action on the pre-resto 21648.




The fan is hotwired right now, so it isn't starting as smooth as it should, but the blades run true and in plane at full 120V line in on the old 4 pole big motor!


This is why I need a switch sooooo badly. Getting the Bravi Bladeset in has me wanting to restore this fan immediately.  :dude:

It has been my distinct pleasure to have made Jerry's acquaintance and to have purchased several of these blades from him. His craftsmanship is impeccable and the results are astounding. With Jerry's help I have been able to resurrect 2 16" Emersons, (Trojan 5320, a 1st Gen.Osc. 2220). I also have plans to restore an 1820 and 11648 in the near future, with his help. It's quite gratifying to restore these old 16" fans with such quality replacement parts. I don't often give out testimonials, but Jerry's work is in a class by itself!
