Antique Brass Blade/cage Electric Emerson Fan 19666 For Sale
Here is an antique, restored Emerson Brass Blade/Cage 3 speed non-oscillating fan. I have had this fan in my extensive collection for a couple of years now and it has always ran flawlessly. I have ran it in access of a several hours and the motor housing always felt cool to the touch, even on the highest speed. I am an active member of the AFCA (Antique Fan Collector's Association) and an avid Fan- Collector. I have restored several fans, usually for my personal collection, but it is time to sell a few so I can get some new ones. This fan has what I believe to have all of it's original parts except the following: the screw in wire grommets, rubber feet, cage mounting screws, motor cord, and electrical cord/plug. It runs great on all speeds but does have a very slight wobble on the lowest speed but not enough to cause vibration to the fan itself. There is a crease in one of the blades as well, but it really is hard to notice as the blades have a mirror finish. If that really bothers you, there are AFCA members that can make a new one. Refer to the pics in detail. I assure you, these pics were taken the same day this was listed. I restored this fan a couple of months ago. I will ship this fan in two separate boxes, one with the base/motor housing, and one with the blade and cage/struts. Please contact me if you have any questions. I will do my best to answer them thoroughly. Thanks for looking and happy offerding!!!Restoration of all parts, every brass part was then machine polished using a 3 step buffing process, except the cage (I like a nice contrast between the blades and cage so the cage is slightly less shiny). All painted parts were stripped to bare metal and professionally bead blasted. After four coats of automotive grade 2K primer, all parts were sanded smooth. Next, all parts were painted Gloss black and clear coated. This process was all done using my HVLP pneumatic paint gun. I have been painting aircraft and antiques for years. Before reassembly, I cleaned and inspected the speed coil and stator windings. With no defects found, I applied red insulating varnish for extra protection which can be seen using a flash light (or sunlight). As stated before, I installed a new power cord and plug, new screw in grommets, new slotted brass cage mounting screws, and new rubber feet recreated by another AFCA member. Being that this fan is over 100 years old, I cannot offer a guarantee since I did not rewind the motor coils. However, this fan has ran great over the last 100 years, so I'm pretty sure it could handle running 100 more.This has a "wet" oil system to keep the bearings constantly lubricated. I will have to drain the oil before shipping to prevent a mess. If you need help installing the blades/cage or don't know what oil to use or how to put it in, please contact me and I'll be glad to walk you through it. Also, I'd like to add, I do not make money off shipping. If shipping is less than quoted, a refund will be made. Thank you!! I am sorry, but shipping is only offered to the lower 48 States, NO international shipping.
