I will need to play around with the positioning.  I am also pondering on making a vane oscillator...should not require much additional work.

The stem of the motor is dramatically moved toward the blade in order to balance the motor, blade and cage assembly on top of the base. This would really help in lowering friction and allowing freer movement. The fan above seems to move pretty slowly and seems to also be running at top speed. Just a thought. If it was better balanced, it could likely rotate easily at lower speeds.
Cheers,
