Two additions to my Whiz Fan Family, The first one was a cast base witch I turned into a tab foot,added a solid brass toggle switch and some other goods. Replaced the busted pot metal bearing housings with brass ones I got from Tim Marks. I installed a stator that was rewound by Rick Huckabee. Then I fabricated a brass drop ring cage and struts.











The second one one just a standard restoration, But I did replace the bearing housings with Tim Marks brass ones.

Geoff, That is the original case Whiz Fan base that I added a switch and fabricated a tab foot base plate drilled holes to match the bolt pattern where the grommets go, then drilled holes for the rubber feet. I screw it together brazed up the hole and filled and painted it.

This is not the base on the fan posted, its the same except this one I put variable speed switch in.
