GE AUU: My first restoration

This was a fun project, I picked it up at fanfair and it was coated in black spraypaint and had no wiring. I used Rustoleum black appliance epoxy on it and mattalic gold on the blade and cage struts. This fan is Circa 1918 and has a steel blade due to the brass shortages during WWI, before and after this GE used brass blades, and before brass cages as well.

  1. That was the first fan I restored as well! It was my grandmothers. Great fans, loud and fast, but great!
