Had to issue a full refund - cause of this screw -original? A later mod? 118 Years is a LOT of time for adjustments/repairs. Does this hub look repaired? The paint was stripped.

Steven it appears as if you and the hub got the same treatment.  Have no idea why the screw was inserted through the hub but not original.

I have to wonder if a previous owner did that to check the oil level in the galley.  If you think of it, it’s hard to know how much oil is in an Emerson single bearing when they hold so much.  Not original, but a well done mod.  

Since many 6 wings were used in commercial applications, I have to wonder if some diligent maintenance mechanic got creative. If you find a new blade, I’d be interested in that one.

I have a 4 wing cast hub with the same mod, but just drilled

Mark drilled with no screw?  I have run across a couple of with them drilled too, thought they may have done it to accomidate a oscillator rod and kept on going.  I don’t think the other one with the screw was done to check the oil level, most owners would simply add oil if you were going to go to the trouble of getting a screwdriver to remove the screw plus it wouldn’t show a level only if there was oil or not.

I'd rather have this than a brand new hub/blade set - it can be filed down or removed. filled & hub painted - - hardly seems like a challenge compared to other problems I have seen fixed, and like I said -118 years, if you have a time machine you could see when this was modified, that is history folks. Go buy a brand new plastic fan if you desire a 100% Guaranteed Authentic & Original fan.

I kind of dig it and Lane's right, it's well, done, that's not an easy hole to drill and countersink perfectly Nothing that's beyond even my poor engineerless skill set...

Last I saw, you had decided to keep the fan and restore it?

I have a couple of drilled out hubs. My thought was that the repairman at the time couldn't figure out how to get the blade off of the fan and that drilling a hole in the hub might shed more light on the answer. :?  It would in fact reveal the rotor retaining screw which could then be accessed with a screwdriver to take the blade and rotor out together :hammer: That would be a fairly easy cosmetic fix on a super nice fan.

Another variation on oil fill, would be to add oil normally with that screw removed. When it runs out that hole, stop filling, replace screw. This way is used for other machines.
Various explanations can be made, unfortunately, fan can not speak, nor are there any prior mechanics around to offer their reasons.

I always assumed it was for a oscillator rod also but the oil fill makes a lot of sense also.  Geoff D ideal also makes sense. IDK
