I am in need of an armature for this 8" AC/DC ball motor Menominee.

Russ Huber has an Armature shop in Wisconsin that is reasonable. May be better to have them repair it.

White armature is where I was thinking but honestly I do not feel there is enough value in this fan to justify spending $100 on the armature rewind.

Just got the quote from White. $135 plus shipping both ways.

I would send the armature off to White. That way, you don't have future problems. Anything used you might find will be no better off than what you have.

If the fan's not worth $135 to you to fix it, then sell it or use for an ornament. Otherwise, have the armature rewound and enjoy it. As far as I know there aren't many of these out there....

It's been sitting as an ornament all summer, Now again w/o armature inside. I did repaint the cage when I bought the fan.

I used white armature and they did a great job, but agree $135 is hard to spend on that fan.

The intrinsic value of a fan is directly proportional to the interest of the owner and the collection in which it resides.

Here's to hoping. I figured nothing to lose in trying to rewind.

I think the clamshell Menominees are a very iconic design. I would certainly get the armature rewound.

Hope your rewind went well and is working, it looks nice and clean. One thing is I would add some epoxy where the wires go to the commutator, just some extra protection.
