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.

Some of the larger Vornado fans, (16" blade) either had two set screws in different locations on the blade hub, or two set screws with one set screw directly above the other one in the same threaded hole. I have not seen this on any blades smaller than 16".
