Hi Guys and Gals,
I’ve finally landed a local example of the relatively rare 10 inch orbital Revelair desk fan in gold.
The seller described it as a ‘nice runner’ but of course it turned out to be a wobbly bent blade, non oscillating fan with a slipping gearbox output.

After 5 hours of dismantling, cleaning, lubing etc, she is an almost completely silent running sweetie.
Luckily, I was able to get the blade balance spot on. :-) Single speed, no on/off switch but it importantly has the orbital gearbox. :-)

Incidently, the little fan has the exact same gearbox as the huge 16 inch model! :-)
