Feather Vane Take Over

Here’s a project that was handed down to me. When my dad took over at Fanimation to start working solely for Mr. Frampton, some of his “client projects” were then handed down to me. Which was great. They are great learning experiences and I’m happy to take them on. This one, though, was way out of my league. The client wanted it to look old, so I did my magic on that. The tough part, was all the moving parts. The motor of this fan, sits on two bearings that help it oscillate. Also there’s this feather (hence the name ‘feather vane’) that makes the fan oscillate. With a host of other issues and components you don’t find on your every day antique fan, it was definitely out of my league.

This project, however, got the full meal deal. Completely restored, to look old. All the hardware was aged, and a special paint was used to give it that old timey look. I sent it out to someone else, to have the pin stripes put on, because if I’m being honest, I didn’t want to take the time to do them.  All the internal guts were cleaned up and rewired as I have done in the past. So take a look and let me know what you think…
