I was wondering if anyone might be selling a Emerson 73648, :D

While trying to restore mine I broke the oscilating stopper or the thing that adjusts on the base that makes the fan rotate so far.  This is my first fan I tried to restore and found the fan at a antique fair. I had put about 20 hours in restoring so far.  If anyone knows the correct term for this part and knows where I might be able to find one I would greatly appreciate it.  I was heart broken when I took the tilt screw out to clean it and the head slammed down and broke the stopper.  :cry: 

All help is welcomed

Thanks

Rob

Yes that is me. I'm a WWII reenactor. it is alot of fun. I've been doing it for about 2 years and love it... much to my wifes dismay. I'm collecting stuff from the 40's and thought this fan was the bomb. I've been working to restore it!

Restoring fans is somewhat new to me...and it's really great fun.  As for your WWII re-enactment hobby...that is one of the coolest things ever, I love WWII history, especially American Weaponry. And German Panzer tanks :up: Do you only do re-enactments locally or do you travel?

Remove the pin out of the collar and bond the fractured piece back on with JB weld. If you can somehow clamp that fractured piece snug into the collar during the cure time this may help for strong solid bond. The collar is pot metal and porous, good stuff for a JB bond. When bonded trim away the excess, replace the pin, and give her a whirl. :D

I completely agree with Russ. I've fixed them this way too.

I love the WWII stuff as well, I have REAL U.S. field gear, I have had three M-1 Gerands, a Springfield, an IHC, and a H&R the most accurate Gerand I had....I recently bought a Japanise Arisaka model 38 still has the Mum and a Rusian Capture K-98...but back to fans...I recently bought a emerson 73648 myself, and had to use the JB weld on the blade hub as it would turn, trying to "repeen" the original pressing did not work, so...JB weld dried over night and good to go. I have broken teh exact same part as you did on an emerson 29464....JB welded that as well worked untill I found a parts fan and then swaped it out.  good luck and God bless.

Thanks all,

I do have JB weld on hand,  I was hoping someone would have a extra base or parts to sell just because I dont trust myself to do a good job on it.  I really enjoy taking it apart and seeing how it works and I'm amazed how simple and well crafted machines were built in the old days.  The more I study WWII history and pick up items from that time period it seems to tell a story.  I see we have many WWII buffs out there.  That is great. I'm in the 82nd Airborne 505th Co. G unit that is based out of IN.  We have guys from Mich, OH, KY, IN, Il, and do most of our events in these states.  I belong to HRS (Historical renenactors Society) if your interested they have a site to look at.  I have tested my wifes patients so far as to drive her crazy with my hobbies.  :P I also started collecting oil lamps, oil lanters as well as old phones etc..... Once I started on this fan I have not stopped until I broke the stupid thing lol.  I ran out of time for now dinner is calling

I also collected oil lamps (Aladdin and flat wick) and had a few old phones.  The fans are more fun I think but dinner trumps all so wolf it down and get back to your fan(s).  Try to get hooked on fans; it's a great hobby Rob.

I really dont know,

I'm sure someone will know on here.    :idea    If it dose work I will take it off your hands, that would be great.  I'm also looking to rewire the fan because the old wire is horrible. 

I wanted to show my first fan I bought is a Westinghouse that I have just touched the paint up on.

Thanks all for helping me out.
