Hi
So I finally almost have all the parts to assemble/restore my GE furniture fan. Wondering if anyone can help me identify the screws/bolts that secure the motor to the back web screen? A photo would be great and size if anyone knows? There are 2 of them that pass through the tabs on the motor housing. 


Also looking for the motor rear brass GE emblem?


Antique fan parts already helped me with a lot of the parts so the last few odds and ends would be great if someone has them or can point me in the right direction. 
Thanks

Carl, I’ll take pics of mine as soon as it gets light out so I can get good pics. I’m happy that you found one. 

I think the rear bearing cap is the same as the smaller sized one found on the more common 8” fans. At least it would be worth trying. If that’s your fan in the first pic, you already have the bearing cover.  Or are you referring to the identification tag?    Contact Donald Coleman. He might have made the ID tags in the past.  If not, ask him if he can make one based on a photo.  If so, I can send a pic of mine.

Thank you, I actually do have the triangle ID tag. I’m asking about the motor rear GE emblem brass bearing cover. 

Lane, do you think you might be able to take a picture of the motor mounting screws? There’s 2 that attach to the back web screen/grate. I’d really appreciate it. 

Thanks for the reply Lane.

They’re just brass slotted round head machine screws. Nothing fancy. McMaster Carr.  The motor housing mounts on the front of the cast rear housing/grille. The screws go through the tabs on the motor housing and thread into tapped holes in the cast rear grille. 
I can’t get a picture without taking the motor assembly out and removing the blade. So you’ll have to go with my description.  Sorry.

LaneAre they a shouldered screw? If you look at this photo the tabs on the motor are fairly large. 




The tapped screws in the back grill look like a common 5/32 screw size, just seems like the motor would float around with that much play?

Thanks
