Here’s my most recent restoration done for a friend who’d picked the fan from a junk pile over thirty years ago.  Video of the process step by step is at:

Great fans I like them a lot.If your fan was originally green it is a early Liveyaire right about 1945 the first year on that style.After that Westinghouse went to the ivory/beige and blue/grey colors thru 1950.After 1950 Westinghouse went to the mauve colors.Nice redo congrats !! :cool:

If I saw that fan for sale in it’s original condition I wouldn’t have given $10 for it. Now on the other hand, WOW. Nice work. 👍

I’m pretty sure it was green to begin with. Here’s the “before” pictures.

Thanks Richard. You aren’t kidding!  I went through about every post I could find to get tips from those who’ve had success. I probably won’t do another of these, stop after a win. I linked a series of photos of the tear down etc at the start of this thread for future reference. I’m a visual learner and bet I’m not the only one!  Hope it helps others in the future.
