Looks like a good fan but do read the description.   This is a buy if now, not an auction.

Yup. But it is BIN this week. 
Pancake prices are a bit odd. Sometimes high, sometimes low. 

But they are definitely cool looking fans. I’m restoring a 1904 today.

Original paint. I put the parts in an ultrasonic cleaner.

What do you use in the ultrasonic to clean the parts yet not ruin the Japan or bearings?

I used Simple Green in the tank.

Why would a brass bearing be affected? I replaced it after the cleaning with one from Darryl Hudson anyway. 

Have you had bad experiences with ultrasonic cleaning?

No, I just got one and still learning. Simple Green full strength?

Sorry to hijack your for sale post but I really appreciate the info. Your fan is in really great condition!

I believe I diluted it. About 5 minutes in the tank. I rinse the part when it comes out. It got the dirt out of the cracks between the ribbing on the base.
