Here is a nice bookend to the 1900 listed before. Super original, it needs a new bearing which I will have when I bring to the Regional Carolina Meeting this April.$900 firm. I like this better than the 1900, with the vent holes in the motor cover.And the S wires pinned to the back wire (they are all tight)

I spent ALL afternoon working on a crate, and I could not get the stupid blade off, in the past someone messed up the oil slinger, and I further bent it up, there is something binding the blade to the shaft, even though it spins freely. This is EXACTLY why I insisted on bringing it to Darryl's initally to let the experts fix it, I removed the back housing and attempted to free it, no luck - - I spent 2 hours taking it apart!! Too late now, it is apart, the blade will be on the motor, taking more time to customize a crate. Photos to follow. It's dark now & all my tools & the fan are outside, perhaps getting rained on tonight. The oil slinger is really bent up, very soft thin brass. Guess it will need a full restoration now. Looks like the blade has never been removed.Photos to follow. I am designing the crate with the blade on the motor. Dang GEs!!!

I have had similar issues getting the blade off of a GE Pancake and I managed to ruin the spindle and the oil slingee. In my case, the spindle had been hammered on the end and the spindle became slightly splayed or mushroomed and that created just enough widening that there was no way that the blade would come off. I would totally leave this to Darryl at this point. He's your man Steve. He has experience with these situations. Please bring it to Darryl and we'll talk after.

I have already taken apart(as far As I could) & built the custom crate, an all afternoon job. No turning back now. I'll send to someone else if I can, I kinda need the money at this point. I also had another member just back out of a sale on the 1900!! Dang. I am getting to hate this hobby. That's 1,800 bucks I expected and now is gone.I paid $1600,00 for this fan David, way too much I know, But I can't expect someone else to pay for my mistake. I was willing to take a $900 loss (I paid for shipping as well from eBay) As a result of that debacle I quit AFCA for some time and "retired" from the hobby. What a dope, That fan is cursed if you believe in that sort of nonsense.
