Trying to find a replacement part for my Robbins & Myers desk fan. It is missing the knob for the oscillating threaded post. Thanks.

It could be that your fan doesn't have a knob. It's hard to tell from your photo, but some fans have a slit (groove) on the top of the oscillator shaft. It looks like your fan has this groove. I have at least 2 Robins and Myers fans that have this too. If that is the case, you use a flat-head screwdriver (or a coin may work) to adjust the oscillator mechanism.

i agree with dave , i have the same fan and also the smaller version and neither of mine have knobs i think a straight screwdriver is what i have used to change it
