Hi ,again 
showing some pics of the extremely rare Nordicos' ..
below is the Dc  version using what we all recognise as a fixed cup on the skirt and a banana gear under the skirt
these fans are a constant oscillator on /off switch

Banana gear

Both these fans have had new cogs ,cog carriers, bushes and Carden shafts ,etc etc ..

Below is the Ac version .
.it had had the nose punched out of it ,now in process of "stick" welding the cast, slowly slowly 


it uses a sliding cup to hold the shaft on the skirt and do the oscillating  ...
...pic explains better than I can.. :D :D

previously all the brass work was missing .from the sliding cup upward , to stop the fan moving somebody had drilled 2 holes and placed 2 bolts in it to clamp together :X as can be seen above ..below pic ... is hidden with silver solder more holes    :clap:

Now silver soldered up , 45 %silver rods I like to use 

close up of this this boilermakers welding below ,once clean will be hidden under the new authentic japan finish all my fans are ..
.Thank you Rick   

was the arrival of the 2 mm diameter cheese head bolts yesterday that bought these never ending projects  just a step closer to finishing , bolts to hold the sahft in the cups 
..the dc has been my longest job yet ha  3 + yrs, both fans were just stump's.. 
style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 238);"

pair of very rare birds these two  ..

excuse the yellow lines on Ac .. I spent weeks with a little Mack brush ,nothing was safe from lines / stripes  ,
while I was practising 

Back in the cupboard ..till next time 

 have other fans waiting first assemble 

below is a open cog Delio I'm building , with lots of Nickel on show ...

having a help full machinist ..makes  a big difference eh ..
cheers from down here
