Hi, all -
I purchased this wonderful fan at FanFair Madison. It has run wonderfully, but the height was always 'stuck' at the lowest height setting. Well, today, I decided to finally investigate this. The fan was wired in a manner that was too short, so the wires inside are at maximum extension when the telescoping arm is at minimum. No big deal, I thought. Either rewire from the motor, or add a few feet to the existing setup with some male/female connectors to crimp and keep relatively clean and tidy.


Well, the inner pole was jammed pretty good, but I did finally manage to get it to extend to the height I want. Sadly, There are broken remnants of a plastic type compression ring. Perhaps this is why the fan was wired the way it was. Anyhow, I'm looking for a plastic compression ring that could work here. this would sorta rest atop the outer pole, surrounding the inner pole. Something like this.....

Try searching "compression ring" on McMaster.com web site - I think I got one a long time ago from them, but I can't recall the Tube Size.John

Ed-
That is the perfect piece. Sadly, I can’t make it to Doc’s as my newish job has me working while others are on vacation. Sucks being at the bottom of the totem pole again, but bills never stop needing payment. 

Could I possibly PP (friends and family) and send you money for your troubles?


Thanks for replying!
