Hi all
Ok well here goes! I Bought this Century in the states and sent it to Kim to re wire for me which he did rather well!

Unfortunatly due to my on going lack of work I do not have the cash to ship it to the UK! Also I need some cash...SO!! I have decided to sell it!

I would like $400 as that was how much I bought it for. They are not coming up much for sale these days and as you can see the original paint is pritty much intact ! GOOD EXAMPLE Also it has a new head wire and power cable.

here are some pics :cry::cry: oh this is braking my heart bye the way!!!

The postage for this item is extra! KIM WOULD HAVE TO POST TO BUYER!! ONLY HE CAN ESTIMATE US POSTAGE

Thanks Mr Martin!

I is A nice one.. I was looking forward to using the switch on it to set it in isolating mode and listening to the click click of the ball swivel which makes a feature of these fans. Not to mention the exposed motor.

And it would have been my 2nd brass bladed fan and the oldest I have!

You spelled the fan's ability to go from side to side wrong: "Isolating"...it is really spelled "assulting"...I learned this important fact from an eBay seller. These people really know their fans!!

Century skeletals were made for office and factory use, hence they were all painted plain black. However, someone here painted an S3 white and it is in the galleries section of this site. I paint all mine black, but I like to highlight the "Century" on the back of the motor castings with gold.

Fred, it would seem that any fan company making smaller to larger desk style fans would make them for any end user be it a home or business. Do you know if Century expressly targeted the commercial user to the extent that they didn't really care about home users? Just curious. Century skeletals sure are heavy duty and LOOK as if they belong in a factory or store moreso than in a fancy parlor. But St. Louis and surrounding states were hot, humid and with long summers. I bet many Centurys ended up in homes just as with GE, Emerson, and R&M. If any of the major makers's sales were directed more towards commercial users I think it would be Century.
