Please let me know if you have either of these two items for a 1909-10. Either original or reproductions.

Dan, I don't have either for sale. FYI, no one makes a repro of the 09-10 fan or even the blades. They are VERY difficult to find, especially ones where the blades have not bee notched. I paid $400 for a nice one and was grateful as hell to get it. A fellow was considering making some, but has not. I am curious why no one has made the blades.
You probably know this, but you can take a repro oil breather. Remove move the cap and it looks like the original. If you like you can replace the screen with one with a finer mesh.

Hi Richard, thank you for letting me know. I have also heard the same thing about the fan blade and will take a look at converting a repro oil breather cap. Too bad someone is not making these as it does not look like it would be that complicated for someone who has the knowledge to do so.

I just looked at the one I have. The stamped ridges are larger that both the one in the photo you provided, Dan.

No one that I found making the original fan, so I made a dolly and formed these (sheet metal and finishing skills required). The brass hub knockoff is a Chaffin's repro with custom brass bearings instead of modern ball bearings.
Regards,
Scott

Hi Charley. I have a later brass hub fan where the measurement from the outer end of the blade to the beginning of the ridge is 1 2/5 inches. I think the defining thing that defines the deep dish may not be the length but rather the depth and width of the ridge at the inner part of the blade. What do you think. It does look like the lower two blades you have may be deeper and wider than the others, can it be measured?

Does this fan look like the 1909-1910 type?

I just measured my 09-10 fan and the embossed ridges are 1" wide at the widest part and 4 7/8" long. The measurements on a later brass hub fan I have are .800" wide and 4 1/4" long.

Although hard to measure, the depth of the ridge at the bend is about .300"


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Richard Gould, Folsom, CA on Saturday, June 02, 2018 - 11:34 am:

The depth of the later fan ridge is half the 09-10, about .150". I tried to take a photo but gloss finish makes it impossible to see any detail from old camera. If anyone is interested, send me a text and I'll try sending a couple to you through my phone.

I have found an oil breather pipe but am still looking for a deep ridge fan. Please let me know if you have one you would be willing to part with. Thanks

Daniel, I still have the one I offered. I have not yet repaired the cracked blade. It is what it is, and that is an easy repair with the blade removed for proper welding.

I have it down to repair and take to Bendigo Swap meet in November, so if you still haven't found one you are happy with by then, just message me.

Allan from down under.

In fairness Allan, it is not easy to rerivet the blade and make the new rivets look right. I have seen a jig made to hold the rivets in alignment that fits under the pulley held tight by a vise and has dimples in the right places to hold the heads of the rivets.
