Here We Go!

Rob Schilz and Jim Roadt are doing the blade order now.  Chris did a great job and we thank him for his help.  Robb and I live right by the brass supplier and the machinist and it will be much easier for us to do.  Like Chris, we will be doing this for actual cost and are happy to do so.  The brass supplier and machinist are not the same as last time.

The blades will be made of .025 thickness 260 brass, or .032 thickness 260 brass which ever you prefer.

If you do not have a preference I will make all GE’s .032 and all others .025 .  They will come flat, no holes, and minor scratches etc. are to be expected.  They will need to be polished.

We have 18 blades on CAD file and for now we are only taking orders for those 18 blades.  In the future we may add more blades to CAD file.  We have run all 18 blades and they are listed, labeled, and pictured in the following 18 post with description and sizes.

To Order Blades.

PM Jim Roadt, please do not use this post, I would like you to use PM.  I don’t want to this post cluttered with orders

2. Contact information, including address you want shipped to

3. Your PayPal information, to confirm payment to right person

4. What CAD file # blade you wish to order (the circled number in upper left)

                          #8-  6 blades  .032

                          #16- 4 blades .032

                          Thanks,” you guys are great”

 

We will take orders until December 13 2017

You will have 5 days to make payment  Dec. 18

All I can say is WOW!  What a well thought out plan. Nice job. I've ordered blades from Chris and I thank him for all his effort. You guys have laid it out in a perfect way to very easily know what we need. 

I'll be placing an order for sure. I just need to go through the fixer-uppers and see what I need. 


Thanks for all your effort! 


Lane

I received some of these blades from Jim and can attest to they're quality! The edges are cut so well you will need to do very little edge finishing... Superior job! These blades will need very little finishing!!

Amen George.  Received a sample also.  The edge buffs right out with only Tripoli compound.  Have not buffed the face yet. 



Thank you Jim.  Will have an order to you soon.

So are these cut our or stamped out blades. I noticed the marelli are not cupped at the end. Is that the way they come? Thanks for taking this on.

Thanks Jim I have around 54 blades I will order and also will be ordering Marelli blades for Jan Hendricks in Australia, once I receive his list I will submit our order.
Glad you picked up the ball from Chris I wasn't certain he was as enthusiastic about it as he was in the beginning.

If you are not sure what thickness to get Steve Stephens did a lot of work measuring some of his.
Although we only offer .025 and .032 it can be helpful in deciding what you want

It just won't work Jim so here is my working copy, scanned and I got the better copy to work here.   If someone has some different measurements please post so Jim can get the blades he is making correct.   I took these measuremenber from my own fans and hope they are correct.

I think these two standard sizes are the closest we can expect given the rather large tolerance on thickness now as well as back when these blades were made. Unfortunately I had ordered a load of brass just days before Chris offered this purchase again so I spent some time measuring thickness myself before ordering my brass.

The thickness of BMY and Pancake blades is all over the place. I sampled a few different years and I believe the range was between .028 and .036. The one cake blade that measured .036 was markedly heavier with stout wings.

The few Emersons that I checked are definitely thinner around the .025 mark.

Looks like the cast hub pancake blades have thicker wings (.036 to .037) and the stamped hub blades have the thinner wings (.028 to .029).

We can add Blades to order now , however, you will have to act quickly
If anybody would like a different blade made I will need one blade flattened with no nicks in edges ( it will be used to make the CAD file ) sent to me with a description of what fan it is for including name and size.  I will then add it to this post exactly like the first 18 blades are ( picture of actual blade on graph paper ). I will try to get that blade back to you with your huge order. 
Must be to me by Dec 11  ( I know thats not a lot of time but would like to keep this moving )
Send flattened nice edged blade to me

New Berlin,WI 53151


For example
Rob Schilz
15895 W Heatherly Dr
New Berlin,WI
Enclosed 12 " Tesla fan blade  Flat and nice to add to CAD file
Thanks  "you guys are great, I will place my order after I see it on this post"

When I get them added to CAD file  I will add them to the order form on this post
Then you can order them via PM as instructed in the first post
Please dont order any of the new blades until they are on this post
If they are not on this post with picture and description then they are not available

I can not promise these will be added in time, but the faster I get your blade the better the chance
Please make sure your description of blade is accurate ,other members will be relying on it to order

Because of this new addition the deadline for ordering is moved to
 Dec 20, 2017
Just in time for Christmas
I know it sounds like instructions from the Blade Police ... just trying to keep it organized

Thanks for looking
