Hey Mike, tell us about the hub and spider on your 27666. Is your hub steel or cast iron? If your hub/spider is steel, is it painted black or gold?


The hub that holds the blades appears to be steel.  It has no paint on it; it has been all but stripped off when the fan was restored, leaving only the silver-gray of the metal with a few small scattered splotches of brass colored paint.

A magnet test on the struts that hold the cage has just also revealed the struts to be solid brass, too!
