Soon as the weather levels out up here in the Portland OR., Vancouver WA. area :cool: I'll be setting up a couple of tables of fans for sale.  Not looking for the hassle of packing them up and sending them out, they will be priced real fair for carry out.

What I am looking for are email address's of those with in travling distance, that would be interested in knowing when it is going to be going on.  I'll then come up with photos or a list of items folks are interested in.

Please send email addy's to larrysindabarn@live.com

May the good ones find you...

Larry, Why not just post what you have for sale, how much and when. I'm sure ALL interested parties will contact you. I bet you'd be surprised how far some of them would travel for the right fan and price.

I sold alot of fans in the past, that way.  Usually the first 20 inquireries want to know how to ship them to zip code such and such, or Tiwan.  This way, if there is an interest in such a sale, they go out on the table and any that wants any can step up and offer me something for the whole table.

Now, option to is Steve Stephens (Thanks for the offer guy) Says Fan fair is in Sacramento this year?  Closest to Portland I have ever seen.  So, it might behoove me to load up the Excursion and have a sale there.  With any luck, my sale might pay for half my fuel.  But more importantly, I get to do something I may never get to do again, so who knows.

Most of what I have to offer would be lower end stuff that the Budster and I picked up many moons ago in our collecting infancy.

We'll see.

Once you join the AFCA, you get a Roster. You can send invites to everyone in your area. I bet you'd sell out.

Hi Chuck! 

How you been?

Yes, that is a 1937 Farmall F-12 that I saved from getting ground up and sent to China when scrap prices were up.  I kind of gravitated into these guys once I snagged up all the fans in the area, LOL!  This particular one I traded it to a tractor friend for a tractor that fit my long legs better, a 147 Minniapolis Moline RTU, which is in a musieum in Dolenega, GA last I heard.:shock:

I stuck to tractors outside of the John Deere relm, and spoke the famed words, "I'll never restore a John Deere".  So I set about restoreing a 1937 "A" J.D., and a 1935 "D".  Both of which Ive had offers to have put in a J.D. musieum.  Honestly, all I wanted was a nice tractor to drive in parades and all and I get unreal offers to seel out.  Kinda fun when a hobby can pay for itself, instead of the other way around.

Thanks for asking Chuck!  Hows that century been treating ya?  Thats one fan I think of now and then.

Enjoy!

Century is still one of my all time faves! I had that fan copper plated and it is a good looker! Have not hung it...no more ceiling space!!!

I think you should strongly consider coming to FF in CA. You'll have a good chance to sell your fans, and you'll really enjoy the comradery and see LOTS of fans...many you will never see otherwise! I also recommend that you join AFCA. You will not regret the move...so many friends who go out of their way to help with restoration advice and help locating what you search for, not to mention our AWESOME "Fan Collector" magazine!! That publication alone is worth the price of admission!

The reason I noticed your tractor: My son-in-law's PeePaw passed away last fall and had a '43 Farmall Super "A"...cool tractor, but a bit more modern-looking than yours. He had all the attachments and tons of spare parts. They were recently asking me what value it might have. I looked at Equipment Locators Svc who happened to be listing one with only one digit different ser no! They will likely give the tractor to a young man who helped the family a lot during PeePaw's last years.

Blessings!  Chuck

Thanks Chuck and Steve for the offer to join the AFCA.  Some of you might remember back in the day, The Budster and I were members during the "American Fan Collector Association" days, black and white news letter and all.  Good times...


I have e-associated and phoned a lot of fine folks back then too, would love to just shake hands and say howdy sometime.  My first fan friend, Paul Mills, Steve Cunningham, Stan Goode, Mike Holland, Rod Rogers, Jim Chesnut, and Hey, Darryl Hudson! 

Fans are still a terrific hobby, and I will never pass up a good one.  I do have shelves full of what "The Budster" and I stored up that John Davis and Dave Freidlund warned we would be looking to get rid of some day as time went on.

These are good running, inexpensive fans for young collectors and those that dont really want to pull a second mortgage on the farm for.

Thank you for those that have offered to lighten the load on the pancakes and others too.  Still thinking about that. LOL!

Best regards, and Gods blessing to all.

Larry
