Hey everyone, if you saw my post in the Pre-1950 forum you may have seen I recently acquired a fairly uncommon 230v Westy Tank made in Manchester England. The unfortunate part of it being an uncommon 230v Tank is I will have to wind my own speed coil, which with the new winding tool I purchased shouldn't be too hard. However it does need a few parts and hardware, which I really appreciate anyone offering for sale if they are willing. I would prefer buying just the parts as the cost of shipping an entire parts fan out here to New Zealand would be prohibitive. Thanks for any help!
The fan needs:
Complete Switch (don't mind if the coil is fried, just need all the parts to be there)
Screws that secure switch to base
4x screws that secure the struts to the motor housing
Centrifugal switch springs
Fiber insulator and screw that covers the switch plate
5x rubber feet
Screw-in grommets, both the motor housing and base grommets
Oil wicks (can't find a source for these locally unfortunately)

I'll likely end up restoring the fan completely as it looks like it has been repainted before so I don't mind the cosmetic condition of the parts as long as they work. Thanks in advance for any help!
