Dean:  Your fan is a 1903 GE Pancake I believe. Same one that is seen in this thread and whose picture is below:

Very pretty! How much?

1903. This is my all time favorite Pancake and I'm not alone in that opinion. Someone did a first class restoration job on your fan, Dean. Very nice indeed! Worth every bit of what you're asking (IMHO). It's a classic beauty!

After 4 1/2 hours of customized packaging,I believe Audra will receive her fan in perfect condition. No assembly required other than the oil cup. Dean

If I may make a suggestion, from now on any fan I ship, or have shipped to me, will have a rag inside the motor to keep the rotor from becoming a "battering ram" I had a really nice original lolipop damaged in such a way, actually bent the shaft. It was otherwise packed really well. Just putting that out there. Hate to see such a beautiful piece get hurt.

I am the King of getting bashed up fans lately (10 this summer, so far . . . )Cage & struts should be boxed up separately - in my opinion - - plus the postal carriers have gone nuts with all the extra traffic.Some fans appeared to be packed well - even from members! The common thread - - they were shipped WHOLE!! - - Just one drop off a table.

The biggest thing that insures a fan makes it to its destination undamaged is simply immobilizing it. I’ve shipped many a fan with that in mind, and so far to the best of my knowledge, all have arrived safely. Personally, I think that cake will arrive just fine!

I have shipped almost all of the 100+ fans I had sold WHOLE and ready to run with no damages to any of them.  It can be done.    I lie them on their back and completely immobilize the fan while taking into account possible weak areas that could get damaged such as the neck, flange on the base for some fans, etc.

What about the stator? I'm not the only one who had a "battering ram" issue.

When shipping GE pancakes the ROTOR should be removed from the motor OR made so it cannot move back and forth using a clamp on the motor shaft or feeding into the motor through the vent holes some "backer rod" which is a soft foam rubber about ⅜" diameter and used to back caulking on a bathtub.   Nothing needs to be done to the stator.    I immobilize the rotor to keep it from moving back and forth which can break the front or rear motor castings.

The blade being on will help, but something else would help it arrive 100%. So you're not alone...

Once you look into the system that transports your fan, you can begin to understand the forces that it will likely be subjected to. 90% of the handling of your parcel is automated. It goes up and down conveyor belts and routinely dropped into a cart or container and can fall easily 4 feet. Then other parcels are dropped onto it. When shipping across seas via ocean transport, your fan could go the entire distance at the BOTTOM of a 20 or 40 foot container.
Using your imagination to guide your packing of your fan, you can account for the rough handling it will receive.

But things will likely get worse in the USPS before they get better. It is currently under political assault with the intention of disrupting delivery times significantly.

The next couple of months could be the wrong time to ship a fan. Just fair warning.

Cheers,
Bill

Honestly, I work for FedEx and have had friends there with experience at UPS and Amazon. I’m always FAR more concerned about how the package handlers treat the packages than the machines. Although the machines occasionally will destroy a package, this is rare and they actually treat it fairly gently (if it was packed to any quality whatsoever). 9/10 times when I see a package destroyed it was due to employees doing something absolutely ridiculous. And trust me, I’ve got some stories. That said, my best experience has been with USPS. I always ship through them and recently received a fan through them, on time and unharmed.

I know most of the local postal workers here and consider them friends. They'd never intentionally damage anything, but when accidents happen, and they do, they just throw up their hands. They are only responsible for the packages that they handle, obviously, but they routinely ask me if I've done a good job packing my parts and fans. Looking out for me, I guess. My last fan purchase was through ebay and shipped priority mail. I got it completely undamaged. I did, however, remind the seller that half of the fans I've bought over ebay have arrived with damage. That seemed to work and they did a workman like job packing it. Not as good as most of us do, but, well, it did work.
Cheers,
Bill
