Finishing the restoration of a 1914 GE Loop Handle Roundback (Oscillator Star adjuster under the wheel) and need the instructions for the base plate.  I've searched the forum and found something close but all state the adjuster on top of the gearbox.  Did GE get lazy and just use the instructions with the adjuster on the top of the gearbox for the Roundback?  If not, can someone post it or PM me please?

Steve, is there a chance that’s for a kidney osc?  It mentions a lever on top of the box to throw out the oscillator.

Yes, very possible if not probable.   I think I saved that label when someone posted it and I marked it as a round back.  Or is it possible that GE used old Kidney labels on the round backs which had a short production time?   I have a label on my round back but it's very degraded and not readable.   Keep looking and I hope you can turn up a good label.

Thanks all.  I'll keep looking and if I find it, I will share on the forum.  If not, I may wind up using the instructions Steve posted.  In the interim, if anyone comes up with what may be the GE Roundback instructions, please share.

Nope, nothing found that would be for your fan.

Here is what's left of the instructions on a roundback I just bought.  The kidneys and roundback a look the same.

That’s interesting. It seems to have the same verbiage as Steve’s. So I guess they used leftover kidney labels on the roundbacks?

These are from my list, both are labelled continuous roundback... different printing dates in lower right corner... seems like standard instructions, ignore what doesn't apply to your fan... that had to change when the collar came out.....

I suspected GE may have used those instructions since the Roundback had a short run.  Thanks all for confirming!!!!!
