We offer a full range of services for antique and vintage electric fans.

Complete Restorations
We can restore your antique or vintage ceiling, desk or other fan inside and out. We also have many in our unrestored ceiling fan inventory and unrestored desk fan inventory that can be restored to your specifications.

Antique and Vintage Ceiling and Desk Fan Parts
We have a large original parts inventory. We use many of the parts for our restorations, but we do sell some of our duplicate parts as well. Please contact us for availability of parts for your antique or vintage ceiling or desk fan.

Electrical and Mechanical Maintenance Service

We can service your antique or vintage electric ceiling or desk fan so that it is safe to use. Replacing wiring, replacing motor wicks, and lube are included in the maintenance service. This service is basically a tune-up and more for your antique or vintage electric fan, without performing a full electrical/mechanical restoration.

Electrical and Mechanical Restoration
Ship us your vintage electric fan and we can perform this service to restore it to optimum performance ability without restoring the appearance. This service includes removing the motor and speed coil to clean, repair, reinsulate and bake the winding. It also involves installing new correct period wiring, inspecting, cleaning and repairing/replacing any worn parts that will inhibit proper function, cleaning oil ports, gears, gear casings, motor casing, etc. and installing new wicking, oil and/or lube.  This service completely restores your antique or vintage desk fan without refinishing the fan.

Electric Fan Motor Rewinds

We offer complete rewinds on fan motors that can not be repaired. We also offer rewinds on speed coils and in some cases we can supply core coils and windings if needed. We have one of the nation's top antique and vintage electric motor experts on staff with over 40 years of experience in winding antique and vintage ceiling and desk fans. Ship us your motor for an estimate.

Complete Electric Fan Motor Rebuilds

We offer complete electric fan motor rebuilds on Antique and Vintage American made ceiling, desk and other types of electric fan motors. We have the ability to machine our parts in house and can custom fit each motor to insure proper alignment for optimum performance and durability. Nearly every motor we repair or rebuild leaves Vintage Fans with closer tolerances than it had when it left its original factory. This means we have improved upon the design and often we correct problems that were machined incorrectly at the factory. When old stock parts are needed,  we also have one of the largest inventories of fan motor parts in the United States and continuously purchase parts to insure our inventory maintains the parts we need to offer our customers the best service possible.


Custom Light Attachments
If you already have an antique or vintage ceiling fan and would like a light attachment for it, we can custom manufacture one for your particular fan, and hand build to your specifications.

We have numerous original electric fan related catalogs that help us determine such things as what types of finishes, light attachments, down rods, etc., that were available during the time a particular ceiling, desk, or other type of fan was produced.
