Found another fan. Haven't been able to find much info on this exact model though. Looks like something on the back of the motor is broke off? 

On a side note, I found some sort of homemade fan with a random electric motor and a brass cage for a "ECK" brand fan. If I'm not mistaken it was a hurricane. Can anyone put a value on just the cage?

Can you post a photo of the cage and badge?  That could be a fairly valuable cage but condition and size, etc. would play an important part towards value.   I don't know what the values would be in any case.

Your fan appears to be a 12" "UNIVERSAL MOTOR" manufactured in 18-19.  Menominee discontinued their 16" "UNIVERSAL MOTOR" model in 19.


Characteristic of your fan for dating is your motor tag, absent gear box(no doubt die cast metal), and lack of brass guard and struts.  Menominee first introduced there 12"/16" UNIVERSAL MOTOR models with full dress brass in 15.

Thank you very much for the info. Every time I post something on here is doesn't take more then 24 hours to pretty much know exactly what it is. Thank you for all the info.

As for the cage, a friend and I found it in an old building but left it because the owner wasn't around at that time. When I'm able to go back and have him there I'll get some pictures.

Speaking of Menominee fans I just became the proud owner of a Menominee Staghorn Oscillator Fan tonight, although its currently in non-functioning order and mine is also a Universal AC/DC Motor unit as well, but its an 8" or 9" model (can't tell which diameter it is exactly but I know it is a smaller model).
