Hello everyone, I had mentioned in a prevous thread about my 1948 Westinghouse PowerAire needing new rubber feet because the originals were long gone and the screws were scratching any and all surfaces they came into contact with. 
Well I went to my local Ace Hardware to get some new screws for the bottom of my Westinghouse PowerAire because none of the screws that were on there when I got it except for one of them were original so I got some replacement screws.  
While I was there I thought I would also look for some rubber feet to go onto the bottom of the fan as well and sure enough they had two varieties of plastic screw on feet that look exactly like the old rubber feet that my fan and and others from that time period would of had on them. 

So if others on here need any replacement rubber feet to go onto the bottom of their fans then just go down to your local Ace Hardware and you can pick up a package of 4 of them for $2. Best part is, these replacement feet are made of plastic instead of rubber so they'll last twice as long as the original rubber feet did. 

A picture of the feet in question is posted below.
