|Hi All, sorry I messed up the username requirements yesterday.
I bought a GE 75425 at an estate sale here in Seattle and am curious with regards to what on the fan is original and what someone might have ad-hoc replaced over the years. Specifically the red parts on the front/back of the motor. Here are some photos:
Images are right side up in the link, not sure why they flipped around while uploading to the post...
I was curious to know what era this is, how are you able to identify a manufacturers date?
The fan did not come with a guard, I ended up sourcing one off of ebay. Whats the best way to strip paint and rust, a sand blaster, a wire wheel, hand sanding... If I do use a blaster is soda or sand a better idea. Any recommendations for paint?
With regards to the GE medallion, how do you achieve the two color look black/brass?
I noticed that the motor case screws are brass but the blades have a coat of silver paint, do you suspect the fan blades are steel? If so is there a brass paint that looks authentic? Or maybe ill leave it Steele.
The parts I mentioned earlier that are red, what are they meant to be? Metal I assume, but steel or brass? Where might I source those?
Thanks for the help!
