Here's a set Henry made, installed on my open gear that was missing the worm and the wheel had about a 30 degree arc worn out.  Works like a champ now, and almost scary oscillation on 110 V DC and high speed.  Whips around fast thru the first arc, then goes nuts on the return.  I haven't figured out why, but the arms give different speeds in the two directions.  But the gears don't complain, they're completely quiet and the best looking part of this old fan.  Not that any open gear is going to win first place at the County Fair.  Thanks Henry!  Here's a couple of pics:
