Fan Repair Services

Here is a listing of the rough prices to repair/restore your antique fan.

Keep in mind that as a professional engineer, this is a part-time hobby that I have enjoyed for the last 10+ years. I am not looking to replace my day-job nor in most cases even turn a profit. I treat each project as its own individual restoration. Restoring relics of our history is something I enjoy and in most aspects, the art of the restoration itself is truly priceless.

Each fan tells a story of its life, its usage & its desire to continue working.

Basic Pricing:
In each level of service, I personally perform all of the work. This is a basic price sheet for most fans. Keep in mind that some fans are truly unique and parts may be scarce and expensive to obtain.
This pricing does not apply to very early "Tank" or Tesla/Edison fans. 

I reserve the right to adjust these prices with your approval contingent with my estimate before any work is commenced. I always provide an estimate. EMAIL ME TO GET GOING :
