Does anyone know if there is a trick to the blade removal on these fans.I have three sizes plus a pedestal. All need restoration. I always work on much earlier model fans, but I removed the set screw and cannot pry them off. I have soaked them in penetrating oil,used a butane torch to heat for about 3 or 4 minutes. I’ll swear they act like they are pressed on. Took the motor and blade out of a 16”, put it in my vise , pried it out enough to where it lacks 3/4 to 1’ coming out but it will not budge. Been hitting the back with a blunt steel rod and still wont come. Am I missing something? HELP !

i know this might seem dumb but i have had experience in the past where a fan had a second setsrew under the first. i did not think vornado did this, but you said 16" and i am wondering if you mean an early vornado or the later two-guys vornado fans ...show us a picture.
