Thank you again to the good folks here at AFCA!In my wildest dreams I wouldn't have guessed so many fan projects would be completed in such a short time.




And the video doesn't show fans mechanically repaired/rewired that are in line for resto work as well. About four in line at the moment, plus more.
Pedestal 12" Emerson Seabreeze, Pedestal 10" GE quiet blade, Westinghouse 12" Oscillator (fire engine theme fan), Westinghouse 8" Oscillator, Westinghouse 10" Lively Air, Polar Cub 12", 16" Wagner, and 10" Emerson brass blade Pedestal fan.

It sure is addictive, but seeing the old fans run like the makers intended once again is sooo satisfying. :)

Indeed. I've been blown away by the fan repair/resto hobby.

Looking forward to getting the Busy B looking better with more appropriate wiring! The thick 18-3 yellow cord is just way too stiff for the weak Oscillator. So much so I do not run the Oscillator right now. The yellow/black twisted cloth pair should make a world of difference. :)

It is rewarding indeed. I admit to having many moments of wanting to carry the fan part I was working on outside and throw it as far as I could into my neighbor's pool.:imao

Hehe. It certainly was quite a bit of air moving at the end of the video. My dog was going bonkers.  :?
