Free parts. Bad condition. Motor caught on fire, 4 months ago. Rusty, with a hint of Robin-Egg blue, barely visible. When extended to full height, the blue color is visible. Switch is good, but rusty. No front badge. Front and rear guard mesh, intact, but rusty. Stop collars functional, but rusty. Fan surround, intact, with one very small dent/ding in the lower-right, front-most ring. Wheels/axle/frame, intact and functional. Motor housing and brackets, intact. One fiberglass blade has a crack. The other two blades are solid. Rear Westinghouse ID band, intact, but has a covering of tan paint (?), Serial # 7517EJ (?).
Recipient pays shipping from 20112. No handling fees. Free to a good home.
I'm about to toss it in the recycle bin, or make wall clocks out of the surround components. Hate to see a 65-plus year piece of Americana go to waste, but I'm unwilling to pay for a new motor winding. Made in the USA, of course.
