Hello everyone, last Saturday I picked up an early 16" Westinghouse "Darth Vader" Fan on Facebook Market Place and it needed to be rewired, and when I was trying to remove the stator out of the motor housing using a benchtop vise, the motor came loose from the vise jaws and fell 4 feet to the concrete floor of my dad's workshop which resulted in the oscillator gearbox getting damaged and the motor housing getting damaged as well. 
The Stator Is still good as far as I know but the motor housing and the oscillator gearbox are damaged beyond repair.

I was told that the 12" Darth Vader Fan's motor housing and oscillator gearbox would work on a 16" "Darth Vader" Fan, so with that in mind, if anyone has a 12" Darth Vader fan that's a parts unit that still has a good motor housing and oscillator gearbox I would be interested.

Thanks!

Levi
