Very nice fan, Rick.  I've seen your R&Ms at Fan Fair so I know how well you treat them and how much care you take with each one.

That is the earliest R&M 8" table fan. I've only seen three. One was brass plated. Have known Rick a very long time. Super nice guy.

Dan,
No, I have just started selling them and I listed them on eBay first.  Maybe I should list them here first before I go onto eBay?

Thoughts ?

Thank you,

Rick

I agree. It would be nice to let AFCA members have a shot before the rest of the world.

I had a chance to talk to Rick quite a bit at fan fair this year-he knows a great deal about R&M fans! I sure learned a lot. If I’m not mistaken, Rick’s mother worked at the R&M factory. Super nice guy and has some very nice fans! I purchased a really clean 1404 from Rick. Stand up guy and very knowledgeable. I am sure AFCA members would be excited for a chance to purchase a few of your fans Rick!

Justin,
You are correct, my mother worked at the R&M factory in Springfield, Ohio circa 1940- 1942.  She worked in the area where they wound the motors.  I probably have some of the black & silver diamond cage fans on my shelves that she touched back then.

Thank you,

Rick
