Hello Everyone:
I'm so excited I've found this forum. I've restored one vintage Emerson fan successfully. It only required cosmetics and runs great. I believe its from the late 40s or early 50s. That success has lead me to try another fan. I just bought it yesterday, an Emerson Seabreeze 3460. I don't have it in hand yet but will in a couple of days. Any thoughts or things I should look out for when restoring this model? I will want to re-wire with vintage-type cloth covered wire. I've read several topics that say don't remove original finish if I can help it. I will try to keep finish. Any other thoughts?

Keep it original, just detail to the nth degree if paint is in good condition overall.
If say, half gone, try your hand at a repaint. It is your fan, your decision, yours only.
Good original though, is my favorite.

If you intend on using it regularly, a rewiring might be in order if original is in poor condition.
If you decide  to do this, original styles are available from several suppliers.

As always, they require regular oiling, if used every day. Place a couple of drops in the front and rear oil holes,
once a month. Quality modern oils like, 3n1 with blue label, Zoom spout, or Royal Purple synthetic.

Good luck with your Seabreeze, it is a great beginner!
