As there are two types of Lasko oscillators, I call this model a "Vane oscillator", not the type where the motor oscillates, but rather has vanes in the front that oscillate. Anyway, the motor is mounted to the rear grille, wich in turn is mounted to the box with rubber cushions. Those are broken.

All four broke off. I'm thinking I can have my nephew 3d print some, or substitute some long bolts and a thick rubber bushing?

what i have done in the past with the same issue is get rid of the "top" which was pressed in to the rubber bushing and has a nut on the threaded end. Drill straight through all four bushings and come up with the appropriate long screw/bolt with a nut on the end and re use those 4 rubber bushings that should do it

That's exactly what I was thinking Tom. Do I need to take the whole fan apart to access the front nuts?

Yes, I got it going, but I have a stripped out screw hole for one of my struts.
