Have crafted a copy of the 24 series switch label, but the fan it attaches to is 26 series. Does anyone have a copy of a 26 or 27 series switch label so that I can make a copy? The one I have is a Microsoft document that I created from images I saw on the Internet. The reproduction is almost exact. I spent a couple of hours making it. If anyone wants it I can post a link to download and you can print it yourself on what ever paper you like. Have seen this posted on another topic, but as a guest not able to reply and more importantly the post is years old.

  The 26,27XXX fans were made with a metal pan covered in felt that attached to the base to cover it entirely. It would have mounted to the fan at the site where the brass screws are holding the wooden plate. I don't know that there was a label fashioned for these fans after the 24XXX base was abandoned. Good looking fan on the link.

I think you are correct. Cannot find any information to support the idea that the 26 or 27 series actually had a paper label attached to the felt cover. The fan I have didn't have a bottom cover or switch when I got it. The coil was busted into pieces. Now it is in much better shape, but made my own switch out of thick brass blank and used a rubber fender washer in place of the leather one it should have (to be original). Any more modifications and it may qualify as a "Franken Fan". The paint is 95% original, however. The Japan black is thick and sanding it produces brown dust. Hard to duplicate without serious effort.

On another note, if anyone wants a 24 series label that you can edit and print, I have it and can post a link to it. I made sure every letter lines up correctly. Lots of spacing trickery to make this label look right.

James, I'd like to get the link to the switch cover label you worked up.  I've got a 24666 with just some scraps of the label remaining.  Thanks.  Jim

Here is the link :

Directions for Types 24645 Final.doc

Make sure your margins are set up for vertical room so that you can cut it out with a razor blade and straight edge. The one shown on this topic should be a good template for that. I don't think it needs to be exact since it was probably cut by hand with a large tool cutter originally. You may want to use paper that is creamy or yellowish in color. White will look a little off for an antique fan.

Have included three photos from other people's fan. The last photo's first line of instructions does not line up like the other two photos. It came from this forum on another thread and believe it was uploaded by a member I've never met Tom Newcity.
