Need to find an oscillator arm and assembly for a Peerless FF2 with a front oscillator.

I don't have one John but some more photos are needed because there are at least two variations of the arm I think; one that is straight and one that is bent.  A side shot of the oscillator disc.
edit:  I was thing of the earlier tab base oscillators which used two arms and I am not sure of the later one like you have.  My earlier one has two vertical curves in the linkege and my later one (earlier than yours but still a cone base) has some sideways bends in the linkage.

John, have you taken apart the oscillator box? I think you're also missing the knob that sticks up through that hole to disengage the oscillator. There might be more missing inside there. There were some that there was no hole, but those are constant oscillator models. . 

You'll need a tool that engages both holes in the cover and then it unscrews. Be careful as some of these have pot metal lids on the oscillator. Mine was cast iron. I used an old c clip removal plier I had on hand , but it's not the best tool for the job. 

The challenge for you will be the arm and the shoulder screw that hold it on.  Tim Marks, machinist extraordinaire made me a perfect shoulder screw.  I know he's busy these days, but if he still has the dimensions, he might be able to make you one.

Good to know. I assumed this would overall be a longer term project.

Those are beautiful fans. Here is a Colonial I did a few years ago. Basically the same fan.

My Colonial front oscillator may be the first year for the cone base style.   Not the best photos here but the linkage is cast steel or iron (magnetic) and the screw at the other end of the linkage at the neck of the base goes down through the link to the base mount and is also steel.   The round knob at the front end of the linkage is brass (non-magnetic).
This one is a constant oscillator with no provision to stop the oscillation other than to place the thumbscrew in the middle of the oscillator disc.   Cover on the gearbox top is cast iron.   I used a Park Tool bicycle crank spanner to get the cover off but had to squeeze the spanner for a closer span in a vise.
