The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Fixing a Fan

Any of you have experience with repairing electric motors? Is it something relatively easy to do or should I try to find a new motor instead?

Here is the back story. Several years ago, my wife bought this fan at a flea market for a few dollars. It was “broken” in the sense that it no longer oscillated. One of her great-uncles fixed it and gave it a new paint job. It worked great until a lone plastic sack got sucked into the fan, wrapped around the blade & shaft jamming it, and the motor burned out before we noticed.
