a broken fan......or is it?

My dad has had this fan for most of my life, if not all of it. For the last four years or so, he has had it in his basement, where he works out, cooling him on his treadmill (yay dad for working out all the time!!). It finally quit working. When Kyle found that out, oh boy, did he want it so that he could take it apart! He loves to take things apart to see how they work, and loves working on things, and LOVES fans!! So we were visiting dad and grandmother on Sunday to drop off a bicycle for his neighbor (who is earning his Eagle scout by finding and fixing up 60 bicycles and donating them, wow! this kid is like 14). Kyle picked up the fan that night, and came home to promptly work on it.

and guess what?? he got it running again!! here are some pictures of his work in progress. The last one is the fan partly cleaned. He is cleaning it from top to bottom then it will reside in his room to be his personal fan. Dad, your fan lives on!!!
