I found an old AOU with brass blades for 25 bucks. Untested, but all there. Nothing missing and fan blade turns easy. So if the stater is good and the switch should be able to refurbish this one not too bad. Can anyone tell me when this one was made? Thanks. Since the cords were cut if anyone has a wiring diagram I would appreciate it

Ed: It looks like Form AB1 would put it right around 1922. I've got the stationary version, same form number. Looks like a good deal for $25.

should be a 2 wire headwire to a shaded pole motor unless there is no choke coil on the switch plate . In that case it may be one of those tough 4 lead stators where the speeds are wound into the stator. Good find regardless.

Thanks. I am going to most likely keep this one and sell one of my other AOU fans.

It looks like it is but the fan blade on the box fan is on correct. The hub with the set screw is on the back side. The brackets are on the front. Here is a picture of the finished product.

Here are some photos. After looking at it the hub does go in the front. It was on backwards.
