|Do I get the prize for longest time between posts/replies? I haven't made much progress on my star oscillator fan over the years, until recently. I have had it blasted and primed for a few years now, but hadn't bothered re-painting or assembling it yet since I was still not sure what I was going to do about the oscillator function. Well, my dad is a machinist and was bored one day and decided to cut a new set of gears for me. He was actually cutting a new gear for one of his lathes and thought he'd try out his new indexer on my fan project. I'm excited to get back to this project and start final assembly. Do I fill the gear box with the same oil used for the shaft wicks?
