Cool little old pedestal GE Quiet blade Oscillator restoration. Stripped Oscillator parts repaired with far more than epoxy. Steel pins and cyanoacrylate glue make them stronger than they were from the factory. :)














































































































Thanks for looking! :)

Quiet blades are great fans Alex. I have an 8” desk version of the same fan.

You've been busy Alex, thanks for documenting the process.

Thanks, Sean!
Indeed these are awesome fans! Aside from the weak Oscillator parts needing to be pinned, it is quite solid and a fine runner now!

Thank you, Richard! Busy indeed! Trying to not let fans pile up just to be thrown on a shelf and never enjoyed. The quiet blade fan has become a family favorite and is now a centerpiece on the fireplace(when no fires are burning..lol).

Fire place? It's January! I got A/C and fans blowing, gonna be 74 down here tomorrow! I'm moving out of this furnace when I retire (in ten years :X). At least I can enjoy my fans all year 'round.

:imao

I can sympathize! I've not had to make a fire in years. Though we've had some cold nights this year, there really haven't been any the furnace and a space heater couldn't handle. O_o
