|I have a 100% functional and complete Emerson Seagull- oscillating version.
Lots of surface rust in places, but not so much on the base, and certainly not so much that it doesn't work; you can still see chrome on the "seagull" on top, and the knob in the center of the blades.
I want to restore this, as I love the processes and learning, but if I'm being honest (and I know no other way) I don't want to keep it.
I def want to sell it so I can move on to the next fun project...
Can anyone offer some solid advice on the process? Will It devalue it? I'm not currently planning to re-paint or anything, just clean it up, free what I can of rust/grime, see where we are.
It may be more grime than rust for that matter.
Come to understand that this could be a somewhat "special" fan to a collector, so I also don't want to good it all up.
Help anyone? Advice? want Pictures? Should I sell it as is, and move on to another play project?
It does work- it's so cool to plug something in so old, and watch it just do it's thing.... they just don't make stuff like they used too!
