Before






I got this fan from the FF 2017 auction. It's a 2 speed with a 7in steel blade. I don't know why but the wiring was all melted. Didn't find any shorts. Rewired everything. Got a grommet kit from Rich Raclawski. Repainted it with a darker green and gray. The fan runs real smooth and very quiet. 
    Does anyone know the circa of this fan? I'm thinking early 50's.

Nice job.  I believe the year of manufacture is1950 based on the serial number A50 on the label.

Wow, Vic - super nicely done indeed!  Love your attention to detail throughout.
Gotta ask - what sort of paint products & techniques did you use?

Nothing special on this one. Just used Rustolium Enamel with two coats.You have to take the whole fan a part. I give it a light coat,wait a few minutes then completely cover the part. I wait till the next day to do the second coat. I used gold wheel paint that I got from an auto parts store for the cage. After a couple of days I apply liquid wax. 
     Thanks guys for your nice comments. :D
