Doesn't have to be the correct parts, just not modern.

I can provide you with a hanger if you like, although I honestly usually just use the regular Hunter hangers from the Originals.

The below canopy is the correct one. I don't have any extras, those are relatively hard to find unfortunately.

As you may guess from some of my photos, I grab all the hangers I can, and still have 20 or so on the floor.

I am loath to give up parts ('cause ya never know what you might need), but I may have a extra, real, honest-to-God, Hunter canopy I might part with ...

Sounds good. I tried to impress Hunter with my old fan to get free parts from them but no luck. They didn't know what a C-18 was. I told them they used to make them and they were surprised.

There are still a few folks with Hunter that know their history further than the corporate blurbs they put out.  They put on a nice show and historical timeline for the 2008 FanFair in Memphis.

I have some fun over on another vintage fan forum with the guys that swear by "American made Hunter Originals".

They haven't been "American made" since the 70s.

I'll get the Christmas photos off the camera and take a photo of what's available.

Hunter canopy timeline.

Left to right

Typical pressed steel teens through at least 46 (move to Memphis from Fulton)

2 examples of their larger ventilated canopy, larger pipe hole for spiral brass sleeves or there is a special hanger with a built in sleeve in the second photo on a C-17.

A cast one that came on a Memphis R52 (46-49).

The late 60s through early seventies trumpet in both cast and plastic.  That is a plastic one that is NOT supposed to be 2 piece.

The 2 piece 70s on Original.  They did this in plastic as well as cast.

I can let go of the ventilated one with a smushed bottom.  Will take some tapping to straighten out.

Actually the ventilated canopy is an Emerson, the opening is larger and made to fit around the Emerson hanger, not the downrod.

I tell ya, dementia makes all things new again.

Sorry David, I have more Emersons than canopies and it looks like I am short a Hunter as well.

Check eBay for ceiling canopies.  Just make sure the opening is at least 1 inch.

I think you have too many fans. It must get very windy in your house.

I think my Westinghouse has a Hunter canopy. I could buy new Hunter hanger parts, but it might cost more than the fan. I'll keep looking. Thanks.

I'll look through my stash and see what I have. I usually have more motors than canopies to install on them. :hammer:

You got my attention David.

Since you want this for your installation, I'll let a set go to further the *cause*.

What's your downrod length?  I can accommodate most any length, and even have a couple adjustables (3/8 pipe slides inside the 3/4 pipe) from 4 to 8 feet.

If you don't want *special*, just get Homer's or your local hardware store and get them to cut and thread the correct length of black iron pipe.  Cheap and looks good.

If no one else jumps in, I will be at my shop on Saturday.

Anyone that wants to part with a hanger setup, post pictures or PM. I'd like to keep original. I'd use 1920 electricity if I could find some.

The down pipe needs to be as short as possible.

Actually David, you need a 1920s house.  Sounds like you have 8 foot ceilings.  I have 13 foot ceilings.

You have the typical low ceiling blues.  This is why *huggers* were made.

Blades must be 7 feet from floor by code.  With an 8 or so inch tall motor and a 5 inch tall canopy and you see you quickly run into physics problems of fitting 13 inches into 12 inches of space and have room to get it on the hook and make your connections ...

This is also why Hunter went to the 2 piece canopy.  It is about your only option.

I see your point. I didn't notice the issue because I hung my first fan in the garage, primarily as a testing place. It has 9' ceiling, blades 7'-7" up from floor. Most of the house has 8' ceilings, but the living room has a high cathedral ceiling. I live in South Carolina where we ignore all liberal/communist building codes, but I am 6'-3" and live in fear of low fans. I need to figure out where the fan is going or if I'm going to sell it.

The NOLA house is c1890, originally had gas lights, coal grates.  Still has the pipe in the attic as well as that new fangled knob and tube stuff.

There is code and there is common sense.  It really is a safety issue.  I like to keep the blades at least 8 ft up where there is clearance.  Wife's brother is 6'7".

Let me know what you want.  The "standard" 8 ft ceiling downrod supplied by Hunter is actually a 3 inch nipple.

That's why you need the 2 piece canopy.

I noticed when tall people came into our home, they'd stay at the edges of the room.

I happen to have an extra Original PB nipple and hanger.

This is as short as you can get.

You can have it.  You can get a bushing for 15 right now on eBay.

I don't have a PB 2 piece canopy, just brown and white.

I see this (pictured).  So, I would need to get a 2-piece canopy?  Can I get these new? Thanks.

Yes, that will work.

Call Hunter (website useless).  They should have them.

You might want the "antique brass" instead of the polished brass (and it is NOT brass, just a colored lacquer treatment).
