 I bought this paint based upon reviews (not AFCA forums) that this was the closest match to the green that was common in the 40's-50's. Well, maybe it is but it isn't giving me a warm, fuzzy feeling. At least not for my Bersted Big Windy, or the Big 20. The paint on both fans lean more towards the blues. Also shown in mint condition is a Hobart/Kitchenaid coffee grinder that has the same color as the Bersteds'. The test patch is located in the upper part of the Big 20. You can see it is greener than the Big 20 or the grinder. I like the original colors so if anyone knows of a closer match, please let me know.

 I realize paints fade or darken over time but this stuff is too far from the blue/green of the Hobart's & Bersted's.

 For those who do like the green, it is NelsonEZY Jadeite Green. There is no part number. On the Nelson site, it is slightly more in price with an outrageous shipping charge; $70.00 for four cans. NelsonEZY sells on Etsy. The cost per can is $13.99. Shipping for four cans was only $18.99, FedEx.

I bought some of that exact same paint because I loved the color on my Hamilton Beach milkshake mixer. Didn't have a specific project in mind until a came across a pretty rough Vornado.  I loved the way it turned out. Think I'd prefer to get it for a paint gun though.

 The Vornado looks real nice. It's a very good quality paint. It's not the manufacturer's fault the paint doesn't match my pieces. Like any paint color, there are different names for virtually the same color and different shades for the same name. 

 I decided to use a more modern color. It's a bit bright but I'm sure it will fade in the next 100 years. I'll post pictures when it's done in a few weeks.

AQUA TONES ARE VERY TOUGH TO FIND. YOURS IS MORE GREEN AND THAT IS WHAT JADE IS, BUT THERE ARE COLORS THAT MIGHT BE MORE BLUIE-ISH OUT THERE . KRYLON MAKES ONE CALLED OCEAN BREEZE WHICH I CALL "ROBINS EGG BLUE" , BUT A LITTLE FARTHER AND YOU WIND UP IN SKY-BLUE. MY ACE HARDWARE HAS A LOTS OF SHADES ....

It is a hard one to match. I ended up with Rust-Oleum Seaside Gloss. It's way brighter than I wanted. I'm hoping it will fade in the next 100 years! It's a nice color leaning towards the 50's-60's turquoise. This Rust-Oleum is a very durable paint that takes awhile to dry. With the Eastwood 2K (2 part epoxy) clear coat, I will have a nice paint job. I will check out the paint you mentioned. We have only one hardware store (Ace) in this remote town. They don't stock every color but could probably order it. I don't recall seeing it on their shelf.

 I'm leaving the fan bracket and motor with the original paint for reference.
 Thanks for the info.

Harry, if you've not tried the Eastwood clear over Rustoleum, be careful it doesn't wrinkle the Rustoleum beneath it. If I recall it's pretty hot when compared to Rustoleum.

Thanks for the head's up. I've used 2K on Krylon and a custom paint mix from who I don't remember, with no ill effects. I'll do a test shot first. I "bake" the Rust-Oleum first on my wood stove. I'll let it cure for about 10 days. Hopefully the two paints are compatible. I'm pretty impressed with Rust-Oleum as is. I did buy some of their clear coat too. Even with just the initial two coats of Seaside Gloss, it's pretty scratch resistant. Some of these paint manufacturers have come a long ways over the years in terms of quality.

a difficult color to reproduce for sure. I use this Krylon satin jade usually 3 coats or as I call them 'sessions' as I keep on applying until I see the paint is heavy, usually 2 or 3 'coats', then let cure. If I need a gloss finish I topcoat with Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel which is really tough stuff makes an extremely durable finish nearly scratch proof when cured. Do a good thick coating also a minimum of 3 topcoats. The more topcoat you use the deeper and richer the colors become especially with metallics. I have not found any jadite-looking colors in a gloss from any maker. Wallmarts around here carry a super selection of both Rustoleum and Krylon.

 That's a lot closer than what I ended up with. I prefer non-gloss colors because they provide a better adhesion for the clear coat. I'm almost finished with the Seaside but will buy a can of your recommendation. If it works, I'll buy two more cans and wait for the day I get bored. Then I'll repaint the fan. I do have a small Vornado box fan that will be a candidate for your suggested color.
Thanks for the information.

  I finally did the Eastwood clear coat with no ill effects. I'm still using my wood stove so I baked the Rust-Oleum Sea Breeze coats on top of the stove for a couple of days and then another three days outdoors when it got above 60 degrees. The only clear coat I did have a problem with was the Rust-Oleum. It fish scaled the previous coats of Sea Breeze!
