Good evening friends. I just finished cleaning up this fan. The paint is original on all parts except for the rear cover which was rusty and banged up. This isn't the prettiest fan I own but I have to tell you that I sure do love the wonderful design of the oscillating mechanism which was patented in March of 1926. That little pin stripe on the head case and the base survived all these years. This is one of my favorite fans. It'll be a gift to my sister in law for her art studio I think.

This hobby is wonderful because I learn something new with each fan I work on (and it's wonderful to give them away as gifts). Thanks for the compliment Lucas.

Very nice fan you have there... great job.
I have a Western Electric 7804 that is one of my favorites as well. It was a daily runner last summer and rivals my Emersons for staying cool. I also have an R&M 5904 non-oscillator that looks like it shares many parts with the 7804. It too is a great, cool runner.

I’ve learned so much and yesterday I bit the bullet and bought a stroboscope.... never imagined I would need one, but how much easier it is to balance blades!

Cheers and great work! That is a gorgeous fan!
Peter
