Actually, I am going to repurpose a vintage round radio speaker body into a fan for myself in my office. The vintage speaker use to sit on top of a radio but could be moved to different spots. The metal body has a cool Art Deco look to it. It no longer has the felt material that was inside the speaker and it has been gutted. I have a motor, switches, etc. The body has a dark rusted look to it and brass blades would look excellent.
I have finally completed my fan project! I want to thank Stan Adams for hooking me up with the perfect brass fan blades...thank you Stan! I am going to post pictures of the finished project in the "Pre-1950" forum...let me know what think. I personally think it turned out great and the fans works wonderfully!
