Just finished up on this StarRite. I had a friend of mine powder coat it chrome. Not the same as chrome plating but it served the purpose. Does anyone know the circa of this fan?
   I replaced the michrome coils with 2- 40 ohm 25w. resistors. The resistors don't even get warm and runs on 3 distinct speeds. It runs smooth but a little noisy because of the brushes against the armature.

Thanks Geoff, the finish was sand blasted off then powder coated. Didn't really plan on matching the resistors and felt haha. I bought the resistors on ebay.
