Not an e-z one to find, this one is complete has a few minor issues as follows: Shoulder screw on top of osc wheel not correct, badge has a dent, 2 wings have VERY SLIGHT wrinkles near hub the wing edges have no nicks or dings, oiler missing it's cap. Otherwise I can't find much if anything wrong. Runs strong on all 3 speeds no vibrations does not heat up at all coil looks clean no paint on them either, original headwire and I believe the power cord is too, possibly even the paint? would have to see under the badge but only the fan is painted not parts. More a pink than red paint it is very faded but has japan finish underneath which I have seen on French Gray before so who knows? Bottom of speed coil looks great the switch has no cracks or chips, at least not on the bottom, only thing I have done is oil it and plug it in. Oscillates fine, I'm ashamed to say it but  I don't know how to dis-engage it so oscillates all the time. One blade only is marked The PARKER Fan blade the wings have a lot of pitch or 'scoop' on trailing edges. Asking $650 plus shipping of $50

Very tempting...
Couple of items. Looks like the missing oiler cap might still be there resting on top of the gearbox?

Also, put the screw of the oscillator arm in the center position of the wheel to make stationary.

Very cool fan...

Cheers,
Bill

Thank You Bill,what you see on top of gearbox is the end of the connecting link, I guessed the way to adjust the oscillating sweep was to move the shoulder screw around but wasn't sure thanks for the heads up. I have a knurled shoulder screw from a 50's Em Jr that will make moving the screw friendlier. NICE fan for sure fist one of these I have had in 10 years of dinking with these, just may keep it runs like a jeweled Rolex but I have so many  projects it will be months before I could get to it.

Original Emerson 16646 with original oscillator linkage, shoulder thumbscrew on the right and proper screw on the left of the linkage and correct oiler.  Darryl Hudson makes the screws shown.   Your linkage looks bent which I don't think it proper.   Was it bent somehow or is it a link from another model?

One of my fans got the fur treatment in a big way.

Steve,
You need that Maid .
Maybe if the maid gathered up  all the  cat hair  you could sell it for pillow ticking !?

Thank you for these pics Steve, Sounds weird but in last couple of days 2 more of these older link osc models have appeared, both with missing pieces. Till now I just havn't run across any in the wild in say 8-10 years so great learning for me.

I was returning on a two lane back road highway from Fanfair in Wichita in the early 2000s and found this in a small antiques shop, partially apart in the rear working area of the shop.  Asked the owner if it was for sale but he was planning to put the cage on or whatever was apart and then sell it.  I got him to agree to sell it and he included a BMY cage.  $50 was one of my best deals so fan.

Wether or not this fan looks like the one in cleburne...
This is a stunning fan. I am in love with it as is. I went and saw this fan Saturday, as Carl was nice enough to call a local for the sale. 
The red paint and original wiring makes this a working stunner. I wish it was in my price range Carl. I'm sure you will move it fast and the buyer will be very happy!  It has a little chatter on idol during oscillation but again it's as found...

Awesome fan as it sits. Original working condition.  I'd leave it in this original color with a rewire or leave it as it is.  Beautiful!

These are really nice fans, I have a pristine original one. This may my favorite Emmy I have at the moment and as far as an oscillator goes can only be surpassed by a 12666.That red is not original paint though

I think I may be able to explain the bent oscillator arm. I have a totally original 16666 and for some reason the screw that holds the oscillator arm to the little brass knob fell out. The arm was wedged against the back of the motor housing by the still spinning wheel and bent by the force of the fan's motor before I could catch it. Luckily I was able to bend it back and there was no damage to the fan but it looked just like yours when it was bent.

Original screws that hold the arm in place.
