I thought I'd start showing fans grouped by manufacturer. The GE pancakes are what I collect, so I'll start by showing them first. I will point out things that I know about these fans. The only thing for certain is nothing is etched in stone. The museum doesn't have any examples of the 1894/95 Lynn Works fan, so I will start with the 12 inch 1896 trunnion model. The fan doesn't use a switch....Type UI Form E28  S/N 11556. The tag says 104v 60 cycle......Except the fan is wound for 190/220....

This thread will run thru the 1908 models. Please feel free to jump in and post thoughts, pictures, variances of models etc.....

1897 12 inch trunnion  The switch is in the back of the motor. With that exception, the 96 and 97 are pretty much the same. Struts are soldered to the cage. The six wing blade is held to the shaft by a set screw, with the shaft having a threaded stud on which a thumb wheel and acorn nut are additional means to secure the blade to the hub. Acorn nuts are not slotted. Motor tag is oval (also referred to as a "football tag" by collectors. Info says Type UI Form E3   S/N 16497  104v 60 cycles.

1898 12 inch trunnion. Paint isn't original but I like it too much to change it. It is a type UI Form E5 S/N 24620  220v 60 cycles. What is unusual is this one rotates CCW. Stator is in opposite of it's CW counterparts, but upon examination, appears to be factory, as everything is wired as one would expect and doesn't appear to have be altered.

The struts are integrated to the cage and the blade hub is not bored all the way through. Other that those differences, this model is pretty much unchanged from the previous year.

The cages sport the GE logo, although there is an opinion that the earlier models did not have the badge.

The cage's front and rear ring use the same thickness of brass stock. The struts are still attached to the motor studs. Acorn nuts remain unslotted.

The blade is changed to 4 wings

Now here is where things can get muddy...Grease cup on top of bearing housing says it's 1899. So does the smooth motor housing.

But then the s/n 25125 and the fan's height compared to the other 1899 solid frame tell another story...Unfortunately, the motor and base are all there is...no blade or cage. So what is this? 1898 as the s/n suggests? 1899 as the form designation says? This is what we run into as fan collectors....that oddball fan...Could it have the wrong tag? Was there a height change during 1899?...The base has holes for rubber feet. My '98 does not, nor do any of the earlier fans I've pictured.

1900....Grease cup is put under the bearing housing and becomes an oil reservoir again. Back ring on cage is beefed up a bit. The base on the solid frame is ribbed, same as on the swivel trunnion....acorn nuts are slotted. 

Type UI Form F
