This fan still worked when I found it, but it looked really nasty. I didn't need to refurb it, but I thought it would be a nice first instructable.

Step 1: Take it Apart

First,  I had to take the base off of it and the blades. The only problem was I couldn't get the blades off. They had rusted onto the shaft of the motor. That meant that I couldn't take out the screws from the motor or clean the blades easily. I wasn't too worried about it because I will be using it as an exhaust fan for another instructable(airbrushing booth).
You missed a "t" in the tittle, jsut to let you know.
Thanks a lot. I'm in the process of making the airbrushing booth instructable that I am going to use the fan in.
Wow, the new fan looks fantastic!
