I bought an antique fan yesterday. I took it apart cleaned it up and oiled the bearings. The cord was replaced but not well so I ordered a new two line twist brown with oak Bakelite look plug. The fan runs quiet and well. Its a Barber Coleman two blade. The one in the photo is not the exact one but same make. I will also put an in line turn switch on it. Its a plug in only fan. The blade is steel and a bit rusty. Should I have it chromed or paint it a steel gray. Could also have it copper plated. What would that cost? Thanks for any help.
