Restoring a old fan


A couple of days ago, my neighbour was throwing away his old fan.
I asked him if I could have it for the parts and he gladly handed it over.

After opening the controls, I realised quickly that I just needed to resolder some existing connections.

I completely disassembled the fan, put the housing and all non electrical parts in the dishwasher to remove the caked on dust.

I then decided to repaint the entire device.

I replaced the broken base with a modified board originally used for  wheeling plant pots.

The result speaks for itself.
