Help!I bought this loop handle and can't figure out what year it is. No. 867086 NP 6252 no Type or Form. Old short base. Brass blade & cage. Is this put together or is it right?

Karolyn, I've been looking at your fan and can't quite figure it out.  If you post photos so I can read everything on the motor tag (even if a few photos) I may get it figured out.  The fan looks to be a marriage of parts from different years.  The oscillator gearbox is from 1925 or later but the motor looks to be mid teens.  How someone got that gearbox on the motor I don't know unless they used the rear motor plate from the 1925 fan.
Also need a clear photo showing shot straight on from the rear of the fan and showing the very bottom of the loop handle frame which, if it's a round back oscillator motor, the loop frame is unique to that model.  1913 is the year I think or 1914.

I took it apart and the rear has steel screws and front has brass screws. I am so confused. The only round back I have was trashed by FedEx. Sad.

Best I took before I took it apart. The oscillator is wrong.

What is the underside suppose to look like?Can I find a round back oscillator?I want to put it back right. If possible. I don't like to marry something that isn't supposed to be.

That's the front of the motor, need to see the rear- actually the very back/bottom of the loop frame.

It is a 3 head wire stator.

I would say that started life as a round back oscillator.  The "shelf" that the oscillator link connects to is straight across while on the next (3-star) the link is connected to the bottom of the loop casting but at a higher level.  With the rear cover for a round back osc. you'll probably be able to put the fan back to original.  The problem is that the back cover was made of pot metal and round backs are uncommon.  Maybe a cover from a GE from 1915 through 1924 will fit, maybe not but those covers/ (rear plates) are made of cast iron and have the gearbox cast integral with the cover.

I can't thank you enough. I was really stumped. Now the hunt begins. I have a list. Mostly BMY parts. Thanks

I don't think much from a BMY will fit your fan.

Hey! I tried and the back did not fit just the thickness of metal different. The 3 Star back I have doesn't work either. So I now have two (2) Roundbacks without backs. :violin:Thanks for your help. Your are right Roundbacks is all that will work. :light:
