Hey everyone,
In hopes of restoring a beautifully preserved original 12" 1906 Westinghouse Style No. 60677 desk fan, I am looking for some parts that were missing or broken. Please look at the pictures and descriptions below and let me know in a PM what your conditions are if you have any/all of the parts. I am alright with spending the time to accumulate the pieces, but my hopes are that I can find the parts before I have to head off to college. Thank you all for your time, as always.

1) Early unreinforced style yoke. Or newer reinforced, if the price is reasonable.




2) Switch body. Please note the bridge between the middle two contacts being on top.






3) 1x strut clip with corresponding screw.






Thank you all again for your time. Hopefully with your guys' help I can preserve this piece of history.

That trunking will only have a threaded home on one side, in any case you are just[size= looking for a non ribbed tank trunnion. It's worth mentioning that you need a non ribbed one because 95 percent of them will have the rib. Also pretty much every tank switch plate will have that jumper, there are only a few different ones but almost all look like that. Unfortunately finding an entire switch assembly let alone the plate will be extremely difficult, I'm only saying this so that you knit you may want to focus your efforts on repairing this one. If I could get my hands on switches I would buy like 5 of them right now, but unfortunately they rarely come up for sale and when they do I find that it is more cost effective to just buy a whole other fan and use parts to complete my others, it's like a puzzle game. The switches when I have seen them go for about $100. I do have a strut and clip but do not want to separate them, you may have some luck with this item though, good luck]

Has the yoke I have right now been modified? I kept on seeing these yokes with a fitting hole for a brass screw on each side, and a threaded hole for the thumb screw on one only. Mine has a brass screw hole on one side, and only a threaded hole on the other for a thumb screw. Makes me think someone at some point grinded away the second brass screw hole :wondering:.

Yes yours has been modified, you can week the difference in shape. Both sides should have larger unthreaded holes on both sides for the brass shoulder screws to mount the motor to the trunnion and one smaller threaded screw hole on the right side for the thumb stud that allows the fan to tilt up and down. So it looks like you will probably need another brass shoulder screw as well unless you have them. I'm almost positive that Chad at antiquefanparts.com has those.

I think the missing right hole to mount to the motor has broken off (and been ground smooth) and the yoke modified by bending up the right side to align with the motor morning hole.

You're very close Steve! They actually ground it smooth and drilled a hole into the motor housing that lines up with the yoke hole.
