I have the cage struts but one came without the clip and screw used to hold the cage.
Thanks,

Jeff

I might have something you can use. I had an old 16" AOU that had a painted steel cage and painted steel struts, which I have some clips from it yet which the clips are painted steel but the screw and washer are brass. I think you could paint the clips to look like brass or even have them "brass plated" using that special brass laquor method that a couple of the members here used on their blades to make them look brass.
PM Me if you are interested and if you don't mind having steel clips on your fan.

Thanks for replying, Levi. I am really hoping to get the brass clip. Antique Fan Parts has the entire strut but I was just hoping to get the clip. I’ll likely get the strut and have it as a spare. 
Thanks!

Jeff

No problem, I was just seeing if I could help with my parts stash.

That clip is a simple part to make. The hard part is the odd thread screw GE used
