I recently saw a image on Pinterest of a fan that was "refreshed". I thought it would be fun to take on this project. We had a fan that has been in the family for, it seems for ever. Well in truth, it has been since before I was born. It is a Kenmore 3 Speed Oscillating Fan Model 336.80122 that my parents purchased in Pensacola in the fifties.
The project started with disassembling the fan and removing the power cord, it had become frayed with time. The disassembly located some other problems - a brass bushing, screw and nut had become fused.
Removing the screw, nut and bushing was not without some trepidation but it was a success! For there I went on to strip the old rust and grime from the fan.
I spray painted each part in turn a metallic black except for the original "Kenmore" name and the blades themselves.
Reassembled after Jay had found a replacement screw and rethreaded the bushing. For some reason the nut worked just fine.
Hope you like how it turned out.
