Got a 3 for $30 deal!! (Plus a 3 hour drive :hammer:). I had to get that Gilbert “Swan” especially since it was only $10!! The Victor wall mount and Round motor GE are also very interesting. I have just the spot for the Victor too.  My concern as of right now is the Gilbert’s oscillator. I’m not quite sure how attaches. Would drilling, threading, and adding screws be a viable solution?

are those screws in the back of the oscillator at 10 & 4 o'clock position? or are they cast projections of the pot metal that was riveted to the back of the motor ?

Glue won't work.  :D  Carefully drill out the cast projections same diameter and replace with correct length and width screws, lock washers, and nuts.

Or.......you can drill out the cast projections and tap the holes with threading.  You can then mount the oscillation case with screws from inside the rear housing.

Gilbert fans were the only fans with infinite tilt. They used a screw adjustment in the neck.

Can someone please cough up the John Lanz patents for this fan? Google is making patent search a b itch for the average Joe.

Thank you I’ll give it a try! And thank you for the patents! I also noticed a second oscillator arm?
