Does anyone know what thread a Emerson k60 pedestal fan takes? I have to drill mine out because the Allen key is stripped out.

It should be a standard setscrew (all setscrews have the same thread pitch there isn't different thread pitches for setscrews, they all have machine threads) what you should be concerned about is the setscrew's diameter (1/8", 1/4", 1/2" etc. it looks like your blade uses an 1/8" setscrew.

I beg to differ, there are fine thread & course thread of the same diameter in American sizes.Yours should be a 3/8” fine thread (SAE), ACE Hardware has them in the bolt drawers.

That Allen set screw was actually a Bristol set screw at one time, I can’t find the thread ,( I had one with a good pic)look on your pole , those are also Bristol . On all the non messed with circulators I’ve had they use the Bristol, set screw. They get mangled when Allen wrenches are forced into them.
