I need some help figuring out what fans these parts go to. I'm mostly after the maker of the parts (Emerson, Westinghouse, GE, etc.) but any extra ID would be great too.



#1. Steel oscillator linkage. What's weird about this is that the hole on the right side is threaded. I don't know how that would help oscillation! Anyway, that is probably going to be the biggest distinguishing feature.





Other side:













#2. Steel wing-bolt. It may be cast iron, or that might just be gunk.






Linkage and wing-bolt compared with ruler.







#3. One speed slide switch. I think this is a switch for a smaller Emerson (B-Jr, 2450 maybe?) but would like to have anyone else's input.
















#4. No clue what these are or if they even go on a fan. They are steel.












#5. Again, not sure if this goes to a fan or not. It is brass.













#6. Slotted oil cup, exactly 1" long. Steel.












#7. I don't know if this is a fan part either. Brass or bronze.








#8. This looks like an oscillator linkage screw. (It does not fit the osc. arm above.) Steel.














#9. Circumstances lead me to suspect one or both of these screws may be from a Westinghouse, but I would appreciate any of yall's thoughts. By the way, all the screws I have posted have normal (right hand) threads. These are both steel.








#10. I think this is a motor to base shaft of some sort. It has a Schatz ball bearing on it.


















Any enlightenment or thoughts from anyone would be greatly appreciated! Depending on the manufacturer of these parts, I may be willing to let some of them go.

Thanks!

After looking up and staring at tons and tons of fans, I finally came across a fan brand that sometimes uses a wing-bolt like mine. The fans that sometimes have a bolt that looks like this are DAY-FAN, Delco, later Daytons, and maybe Northeast. All these brands seem to be related to each other in some way.









Here it is on a Delco:










And here on a DAY-FAN:










It also appears to be on two of Jim Humphrey's Daytons in the galleries. 



I would like to validate that these are indeed the brands that used my wing-bolt, so if someone with a Dayton/DAYFAN/Delco/Northeast fan with a wing-bolt that looks right could measure the full length of the bolt and see if it is the same length as mine (2 3/8"), and also measure the diameter of the threaded pole part (mine is about 3/16") I would be very grateful. Measuring these things would probably not even require removing the bolt.

Thanks,

Noah

I'm thinking some of the other parts may be from a Dayton/DAY-FAN/Delco too.

See the hexagonal bolt under the collar:
Also maybe the linkage screw above it:
Or maybe even the oscillator arm.











And possibly the neck tightening screw:

Thank you to Alex Rushing who was kind enough to validate for me that the wing-bolt is from a Dayton (or Dayton based fan).
