I picked this arctic aire up at an antique store for 20$. I felt bad for it when I saw it cause everything was seized and someone cut the head wire and cord off, so I decided to save it and make it something more than a paperweight I tore it all apart, rewired, cleaned and got it running great! Other than the cheap nylon gear thats busted, it seems like a well made unit.

One neat thing is that it has a traditional steel case around the motor and the manufacture just bolted an art deco looking shell to the outside of it.

I also was missing one of the decals so I scanned the original and printed out a replacement.

Nice save, Dylan! Looks like a nice fan!
Those plastic/nylon/fiber gears were common from the 1940s and later. You may find a parts fan with a replacement at some point!

I was thinking of filling the bad teeth with jb weld and fileing some new teeth in. And thank you! I love older products like this, but at the same time it reminds me of how bad planned obsolescence has gotten with newer ones

I was contemplating the same approach for an Eskimo Oscillator gear. Wonder if anyone has had long term success with it!

Wouldn't hurt to give it a try maybe!

I have some parts fans, different models but perhaps that part is the same.
