I am in search of a used or new old stock power switch for the GE 42X548 that I have been monkeying with for a little while. I have attached photos of my fan when I received it, one of the same model fan as mine as well as the base of mine prior to prepping for paint. I have also posted a picture of the switch that I am looking for. I am afraid that this is going to be a tough one. I am giving this fan to a friend once it is complete. Many of my friends and relatives send me various pictures of fans. My friend sent some antique fan pics from Ellis Island yesterday. As we were texting she told me about a small, green GE fan that her grandpa owned when she was a kid. I sent her a picture of the 42X548 that I am restoring. She was so happy to see the picture. I told her that I believe that occasionally the universe sends all of us an item that is intended to ultimately be in somebody else’s hands. I told her that I will not accept her money. It would ruin the karma. The giving of the gift is also the return gift. The satisfaction of placing an item with the person for whom it was intended has no rival. I am not looking for any handouts or freebies. I just felt as though the story is important. Anyway, all assistance will be very appreciated. If anybody has one, I will send payment immediately.
