Emerson Electric 79646 AQ fan. I took this completely apart and repainted the outer wit Rustoleum black hammered paint, and went over that with Rustoleum gloss black paint. All of the polished pieces that you see in the pictures started out with 220 grit, 400, 500, 800, 1000, 1200, and finished with 2000 grit. Then each piece got polished with my dremel using Mother’s mag and aluminum polish, and then finished with S 100 carnauba paste wax. The cord and head wires were replaced with period correct wiring that I converted to 3 wire/ground for safety. The base was sanded and polished, and then new felt was added inside and out. (notice the polished piece between the top and bottom felt). All internals were cleaned, re greased, and oiled. Estimated time in this was somewhere between 30 to 40 hours. I recently had neck surgery, so I had plenty of time on my hands. Please refer to the pictures for the details, and please ask any questions. Hopefully I can answer. This was my FIRST time with refurbishing a fan. (What a great learning experience)! This all started out, because I was repairing the cord, and THEN THE BUG BIT ME!! I Loved every minute of bringing this back to glory!! Last night (1/24/2020) I sat and watched/listened to this fan, and realized just how AWESOME this fan really is!!! It is super quiet and runs so smooth!! This fan is underpriced!! If you are truly wanting a QUALITY FAN then this is the fan you want!! It’s definitely worth every penny!!
