Free Fan

The fan I rescued from the street, and repaired.

On my way home from work today, I passed a Vornado fan sitting out on the street. I felt an urge to pick it up, suppressed it, then gave in, turned around, and grabbed it. When I got it home, as expected, it didn't turn on. I took it apart to check if it was something I could fix, and didn't find anything. But I tried it again anyway, and it worked! Super noisy. (Maybe it worked the whole time, and I just did something wrong. And the noisy bit is why it was tossed.) A strategic application of WD-40 while it was open, and a bit of a cleaning, and I've got a perfectly working new fan for free.
