I got a ribbon for this fan comming soon how do you open the cap to re- ribbon the fan. Once the cap is off how do you re- ribbon this
 ribbonaire. Is it easy to do? The ribbon I got is NOS 7/8" PETERSHAM  COTTON RAYON GROSGRAIN  RIBBON RED RASPBERRY.
Step by step would be great.
 Thank to all who give help and information for me.

John McComas gave me a mini school at Doc's in may how to reribbon these fans... I want to try and talk him into an article "how to" for an upcoming article in the magazine... This would be an excellent article and a needed one to boot!John? Are you out there?
If you are coming to the Fanimation event maybe we can take pics and do a video there!!
I would be glad to assist in the pics and production of the video...

David,
If it helps, there was a thread by Joe Cascio which chronicled his Ribbonaire restoration project:

http://afcaforum.com/view_topic.php?id=12913&forum_id=1#

Later in the thread he gets into how to remove the bakelite cup, after which the ribbon ends can be accessed. It seems that Mr. Cascio did never actually conclude the thread, though you might find the information you need therein.

I saw John at Doc's do it.  Once the cap is off and the ribbon is threaded thru the housing slot, seems like the trick was to flatten the ends of the ribbon into a sorta tee by using a crimp tool and flame to get ribbon to melt.  I'm a little sketchy exactly how John did it.  
Hello John??
