This is one from my collection. Gotta make some room. Found one with better paint, though this one actually runs better. So it’s for sale. 

In the interest of full disclosure, this is what’s wrong with it. 2 struts have been repaired in the past and there is some paint loss here and there. The 2 tabs are missing from the oscillator pointer as most are. The pointer is in good shape and works fine without them. 

Here’s what right with it. This fan was completely disassembled and every part restored. New headwire and cord, restored original plug. Reconditioned switch. Varnished stator and speed coil. Cage and blade are perfect. No bends, no breaks. Blade was polished and cage. New feet. Even has the original instructions under the base cover.
Kidney gearbox had a cracked flange ( as most are)  and had a Tim Marks flange reinforcement kit installed. Also the other weak points around the gearbox bearing bosses were reinforced also. This one’s ready to run. 


This is a very nice fan and a good runner. Runs for hours and barely gets warm. Oscillates well. 

Price reduced to $650,  payment via PayPal F&F. Delivery to fanfair or Northeast meets only. Prefer delivery to Northeast. Sorry no shipping due to fragility of gearbox

I’ve decided to throw one last price out there. Sale ends on Sunday. This offer is for delivery to Robbie’s meet in PA this weekend. $600. Need to move a few fans. Reasonable offers will be considered. Cash talks!

For those that have asked, yes the oscillator is fully functional. Fan runs great.

I’ve decided to price this at $500 at Fanfair so I thought I’d offer it as a presale if you like to guarantee ownership. I’ll be arriving on Wednesday to set up.  This is a great price for a fully restored Kidney with a working gearbox. First come, first served. 


Thanks for looking!
