     I have always loved old fans and wanted to find one to fix up.. I found one today and bought it.. It seems to be in really good condition.. The fan runs fine and oscilates great, but I took the base apart and found that the transformor frame is crumbling  and im afraid to use it.. It seems like the transformer frame holder is made of bake-lite.  Is this hard to find? 

Here is the info I have from the plate on the fan.

It is a GE

cat 75425

spec 272620

no ab45600

Chris, what is the FORM letter on the base tag? That will determine the year so we know which variation of the fan you have.

The pics should be helpful. You have the very last of the AOU oscillators c.1939 and that's why no form letter which was eliminated around then. I can't help you with parts.

Chris, You may just want to try to salvage the switch base by gluing or some other means because to be frank with you the switch will probably end up costing you more then the fan is worth. Besides, "If it aint broke, Don't fix it."
Just make sure when repairing  the switch that none of the wires or contacts ground out on the base plate and it'll be fine I'm sure.
