I don't need a pack of 1000, just looking for a dozen of these for starters:
1/32" Thick, 3/16" ID, 3/8" OD

Any good sources? Couldn't I use brass or copper washers as replacements for the cheap fiber originals?

The thing about fiber washers is that they absorb oil, where as brass or copper wont really. You can get these so cheap at McMaster-Carr and if you continue to work on and collect fans you'll need them anyway. And you don't have to get a thousand.

Andy would those be from your oscillating gearbox? The sizes seem to jibe with that.

Yeah, I'm wondering something about red fiber washers, too.

If the inside diameter of the fiber washer exactly matches the diameter of the rotor shaft, but the outside diameter of the washer is smaller than the bearing it fits on ... won't that washer wear a brass bearing?

I  bought a bag of red fiber washers (95601A330) from McMaster Carr for my GE BMY, #473961, and their outside diameter is smaller than the bearing it fits on.
(The outside diameter of the old washers on the fan is larger ... 2/16 inch. Inside Diameter = 3/8 inch. Thickness looks to be about 1.5/32 inch.
I measured the rotor and bearing and missed on the measurements before I ordered.)
Anyway, as far as the 95601A330 washers go ... the inside diameter, 3/8, fits perfectly on the rotor shaft. But the outside diameter is too small.

I want to still use 95601A330, but I'm unsure if they'll wear down the rotor's brass bearings. Any suggestions as to the proper red fiber washer to order if the ones I have can't be used?

Jeff, If the washer is on the rotor shaft, how will anything touch the face of the bearing with the fiber washer there. Does not the thickness keep the metal of the rotor shaft away from the face of the bearing? And if it don't, it sounds like you could use one or more in there. I use enough on both sides of the rotor or armature to center it within the stator or windings and ONLY leave an 1/8-1/16 play. There aint nothing more irritating then watching your fan blade pulse in and out as it runs.

Now this goes without saying you did get the wrong O.D. on your washers but, I see NO problem using them. I believe the fiber washers will wear quicker then the brass bearing. If it bothers you, put them in between two of the original ones.
