Thanks to David Kilnapp for a superior packing job on the Lever!! Rick Huckabee rewound the stator -it does have a bit of a jerky swing, but all those complicated parts I am surprised how smooth it runs.

Steven,
Beautiful lever oscillator!

16646, correct?

I'm jealous! Seeing your lever oscillator really makes me want to add one to my collection.

I have had several but they all had bad stators. This one is getting hot at the base/switch - A burning acrid smell - I'll inspect the switch coil for loose connections or burnt windings, the last 11646 I had actually caught fire after running for a minute, I have a project 16666 in a box in pieces. The lever action is cool.

Whatever the issue is, Steve, I will pay to make it right, whatever that means. Perhaps you might consider sending the fan to Rick for sorting out? I'll pay for the round trip if Rick would consider taking a look at it for us. Rick didn't rewind the stator, he rewound the switch. If it needs a stator rewind, that's my cost.

Just a tidbit of info, if anyone is interested. You can transplant a 29646 stator/rotor and choke coil into a 16646. Got a friend's running properly doing it that way.
I haven't seen a photo of a 11646 yet. Only photo I see is a 16646? 11646 would be ornate motor and piecrust base. 29 kit won't work as a Centrifugal setup.l, if you meant to post a photo of a 11646. :wondering:
