Picked up from an online auction for just over $200 after fees, most I've ever paid for a fan by far but still a fair price, I think. Couple issues that weren't obvious from the photos are two blades slightly bent (one in, one out), and the base has been repainted. Is there any trick to bending the blades back without creasing the brass, or do I just bend the opposite direction by hand?
Motor paint appears original. The white paint flecks come off with a fingernail or lacquer thinner, which doesn't take off the existing paint on case or tag. Runs well, a little stiff perhaps but will get oil and a cleaning before any use. From other posts here it seems like it'd date from 1914-16?
