Kind of risky and problematic buying the Century fans that used a lot of pot metal, sometimes including the motor housing.   They can self destruct.  Now, the older 5 speed cast iron models are the ones to have and did not use pot metal.   Remember, 5 speeds, not 3 speeds and you will be looking at a good Century.
Good looking fan from the front !!

Showing the aged and cracking pot metal.   Not much you can do about it and it won't heal itself.

Wish I could offer you encouragement.   Some pot metal Centurys are not cracked but how long will they last?
