I have not done much with fans for the last  1.5 years. Picked this R&M 11530 up locally today. A quick 1 second plug in with switch on and it starts. Looks complete except for the oscillator arm,2 shoulder screws, cage flag/badge. Brass blade/brass cage, cast base with felt. The image uploaded does not seem to be working.

You might want to contact Darryl for some of those parts.

Got this cleaned up, rewired, runs well. Can anyone tell me what is missing from the rear oiler?I am missing the oscillator link and would like to know if someone has one to measure the length from hole to hole centers.

I think what you picture from the rear "oiler" is all that there should be.    I think one puts some grease in the cup part of the body and, occasionally, gives the small rod a jiggle to force more grease down to the bearing.   Has anyone heard of anything different?

I thought I saw a picture of one somewhere with a conical spring so the rod stays up rather than settling and contacting the shaft.

Hi Ed. Nice job on that restoration. Love those R & M Pin stripes too! There is no spring on that plunger. It doesn't sit on or contact the shaft so no worries. See above picture of my 16 inch R & M gear back so you can see what you are missing as far as oscillation linkage.

Thanks David, I can see where there is wear to the bottom end of the rod like it was contacting the shaft. All I have done is clean, replace the felt, touch up the base paint, replace power cord/plug. One can always polish the brass later if desired. Could you measure the length of the oscillator link from screw center to screw center for me?

Sure thing Ed. By the way, there are many AFCA members near you. One in particular does great restorative japanning. His name is Rick Powell and he is in Kalamazoo. My micrometer says 3.1115 inches or 79.03 MM or 3 1/64 inches.

David, Thanks again. I noticed a discrepancy in the numbers 3 7/64" rather than the 3 1/64". I had a steel arm the same length and made one out of aluminum (what I had)

for this fan
