I got a great running fan off eBay. So of course I immediatley took it apart.


Thought you guys may be interested in seeing what one of these looks like underneath.

Both sides work very well. Right blade is fiberglass, left blade is micarta. Right side spins down a bit longer then left. Got some paint mixed up will shoot later this week.

The paint on the motorends were pretty good, so I masked them off instead of trying to plug the vent holes. The right motor was scuffed on the end that would show from the front, so I will touch it up. Won't be very visible with the grilles on anyway. The grilles will need rechroming as well eventually.

the fiberglass blades were probably replacements as the original micarta blades probably broke and someone who was handy probably fabricaded replacement blades for it out of fiberglass.
