This fan belongs to Brett Vaughan.  1932 Emerson 71666 French Gray. He got it off Ebay and I thought you guys would like to see the fan and pics of the original tag. I think the tag info should be saved to our archives. Nice fan.

I don't know if you guys can read this tag well but it is kind if interesting that Emerson says you can use mineral oil or light automobile engine oil. So how many of you guys would use automobile engine oil? Emerson says you can :D

It's a neat fan and in excellent conditions. I think engine oil wasn't formulated with detergents in those days.

Correct, engine oil was detergent free and a single weight.  I'd say "light" engine oil may be 20 wt. possibly 30 wt.  Thank you for posting this and, yes, I can read it adequately well.   Interesting that Emerson says to not run the fan pointing directly up or down.  How many sellers do you see with photos of the fan pointing up?   Quite a few.  The bearings don't get the oil in the up direction and/or the oils might be able to leak out.  These are good instructions for people who might have questions about how to operate their Emerson fans.   The instructions are simple and to the point.  Too bad (understandably) that they don't tell how to remove the screw-on blades.

I wonder how far "up" is permissible? I am guessing 20 degrees or so??
