R&M 3600 is a very nice oscillating fan although it has a stamped steel motor and base.  The 3000 is the non-oscillator version.   I don't think either have pot metal.

A GE 2 or 3 star from 1915 (Form R) and maybe 1916 Form S is all cast iron with no pot  metal if you don't get the early one with the pot metal oscillator wheel.  Gearboxes on GEs 1915-24 are all cast iron.
