My bad - this is a Western Electric 6000, which I believe is a rebadged R&M 3000.

New addition has missing brush caps - actually one is missing, the other is missing just the insulating top (pictured below).

Thread pitch is SAE 20 (1/4") coarse thread.  Overall length is about 1/2" (with insulating cover).

Thanks for looking.

Darryl probably can make repops if you don't find originals.

Sure thing, Austin - thanks for checking!

This Western Electric 6000 is obviously the non-oscillating version.  Cage is 10" - blades are 9".

P.S. - I believe this may be a rebadged R&M 3000, so include that as a possible parts source.

Unfortunately I could I only find one. It fits 3000 models and is in perfect condition with the insulating cap intact and free of damage. If you want just the one, I'd sell it for $15.

Sounds great - I'll certainly buy your single cap - thank you Austin!  PM coming your way...

I have gotten others asking. I have no more of these. I MIGHT have a junker somewhere that MIGHT have the caps on it. I have to see.

94320A737  With some modification to it could do the trick.

$8.71 per pack of 100
94320A737


If an AFCA member here likes the McMaster approach and orders the pack of 100 in black, I would appreciate it if you would send me two in a envelope from your order for my list 3000 R&M.  :D

Another idea - take a 1/4" SAE 20 brass screw, cut the head off, glue a 1/4" knurled plastic cap on the end, then trim the overall length to suit.  Just thinking out loud...

Regardless, still looking for one more brush cap to fit this guy.  Thanks.

PLEASE DO NOT ORDER MY MCMASTER CARR SUGGESTION ABOVE. I HOPE NO ONE HAS ORDERED THEM. I CHECKED THE THREAD SIZE OF THE REMAINING BRUSH CAP ON MY R&M LIST 3000. IT IS NOT 1/4-20 THREADING AS STATED BY MR. NORDIN. THE THREAD SIZE IS 5/16-18.

Russ, please refrain from intruding on my thread - poor behavior.  If you need the podium to discuss something outside of the subject matter here have the common decency to create your own thread.

I checked my 3600 which is the same fan except it is the oscillator version and the brush cap is a 5/16 -18.

Not trying to fan the flames but just wanted to help.

I agree - I mis-measured originally.  Realized it last Sat., but decided not to make mention just for my own sic humor.

Thank you, Chad.
