Anybody have 1, 2, 3, or 4 blade irons for a Dayton ceiling fan?

Maybe you could convince the seller to ship only the Dayton blade iron?

If someone has a pattern, I can probably make some.

You can cast them in iron? I have some originals.

Aren't they brass? I was thinking I'd have them cast, and my friend can machine them.  We made some Dayton T.B. oscillator necks a while back, no big deal. He has CNC equipment at his house, retired tool and die maker. I could probably even hand-shape them in brass, and have a machined shaft put in if I was only to do a handfull...I'm up pretty late if you want to give me a call. 281-216-2775

I’ll call you tomorrow. I have some iron ones and some brass ones. 

Would it make sense to 3-D scan one, clean up the CAD, and CNC some?

My nicest set, on this fan appear to be original, are well made, and are cast iron. 





My other Dayton has some brass, some iron. The iron in the upper right looks original, and the other three look reproduction. 






I’m restoring a Dayton Midge as a custom, and need a nice set of irons that are the same size, weight, and angle.

Were the original parts cast iron or brass?
If we get some cast at a foundry, then machined, who would want some?

The original is cast iron.
There are two versions, the smaller one is for the Dayton junior

Dan: Do you have catalog pages for the “oakleaf” and the “midge”? What years were they produced?

This Dayton is on eBay. Perhaps the oak leaf cluster was a later modification.

I don't have catalog, Evan Atkinson is a lot of documents, it seems he showed me before.
