Picked up this somewhat old FASCO Pedestal from a lady in town. Was purchased new at a local church and then became hers. I acquired it and re wired her and turned the rusty shaft. Little oil and cleaning she’s not looking too bad. Anyone know the age of this fan? Ball park value? I’m clueless on FASCO fans but I love them.

get Mike Mirin to chime in he seems to handle those bigger units, Fasco made some nice pieces , just not as big of a following as the big boys.  1940's  before WWII is my guess.

it appears that it needs a new switch knob, which could be kind of tricky to source because it takes a style of switch knob that hasn't been made since the 1970s.

OK, Thats good! What exactly did you have to rewire on the fan? Also is it an oscillating model or is it just stationary? Because I know a lot of companies made oscillating Pedistals and some made stationary only pedistals.

Levi- I just rewired a new cord to the switch. The old one was toasty. The head wire was great!  I had to tear this fan down because it wasn’t getting oil and the shaft that had the blade was slightly rusty so I turned it and cleaned out oil ports and it runs like a champ. It is an oscillating model with 3 speeds!

Nice! Definitely a more deluxe model than some pedistals for sure!
