Jack's fan's restoration is complete. I would like to call out Dennis LeBow who supplied the switch and the oscillating mechanism and Larry Smith who supplied the replacement stator. This restoration could not have been done with the kindness of these two gentlemen. And Steve Dempsey was willing to break up a good fan to supply me with parts if I couldn't get them any other way. These men are kind and generous and I am privileged to know them and call them my friends.
Here is Jack's fan all complete.









This is the original paint. I did paint the struts as they were rusty. I repainted the motor tag and the badge. My wife replaced the red felt. It's a handsome fan!

That really is beautiful! I think you were quite generous as well for taking on the task. Hopefully Jack will enjoy the fan for years and become a member as a result of your efforts! :clap:

Looks very nice Dave.  I’m sorry the stator I sent didn’t fit!

Gentleman, I was amiss in omitting Lane who sent me a stator for Jack’s fan also. Thank you Lane! You are one of the good guys!

Dennis LeBow supplied this. It replaced one that was steel which was frozen in one position. The new one (which has some copper in it apparently) has two screws in the underneath of the piece which makes it reparable. The old one was sealed without screws so I could not repair it. I figure this fan dates to 1923 or 1924. Steve Stephens or Russ Huber would probably know for sure.
