im new to the forum and fixing these amazing fans. Haven’t posted a question because I was determined to find the answer here by reading. From wiring issues, blade removal, electrical humming from the switch and many more bumps in the road. I found all the answers by reading multiple threads multiple times. As of ten minutes ago I have a perfectly running fan that only needs a little blade tweaking to reduce a slight vibration. She’s not flawless but I did everything from paint to acid etching the blades. Thanks for this community or I would of been LOST! Edit!!! Emerson 77648 Lol! I was excited when I was typing.

I appreciate it. The lamps are definitely easier to wire. Lol!Already got another fan. Just need to go pick it up from a family member.

Brian, you didn't use the 3-in-1 oil you have on your workbench in the picture to oil your fan did you? If you did you just committed a big no-no in the fan world because the only 3-in-1 oil you should use on a fan motor to oil it is the 3-in-1 in the blue can, not the red can.

No sir. I had used that on the drum switch lamp for the bearing. The oil I used on my fan was called Precision spout or something like that. Good eyes though. Lol

You mean Zoom! Spout? That's what I use on all but my 1914 Menominee Staghorn which uses grease to lubricate the bearings rather than oil.

Brian, you'll fit in here perfectly. I call that type of fan a forever-fan, as they do last forever with a little maintenance. Acid etching the blades, huh? Hmmm... Now I need to do some reading! :)

Welcome aboard...

Appreciate it. Definitely glad to jump on here. There is a bunch of information on acid etching. I used Heinz Mustard with a brush to create the streaks. Then heated up the mustard with a hair dryer. Gave it a quick wipe down. Followed that with Muriatic Acid used for etching concrete. Etching solution for circuit boards works too. Watched it carefully because it’s aluminum. When I got the shade I wanted. A quick rinse in water. A couple coats of Satin clear helped bring it to life. Figured it was something different to do than what I’ve seen in other restorations. Extremely proud for it being my first attempt.
