I thought I'd post a few photos of some never before seen Westinghouse fan images from two early catalogs: 1893 and 1894 respectively. I am fortunate to have both of the fans pictured in these catalogs and I will soon restore them. It appears that the Philip Lange models were produced at the same time as true induction fans with brushes.

What one member has referred to as an experimental Tesla also appears not to be an experimental model at all but instead a full production model. Please see the attached images.

Here are some images of my Westinghouse induction fan motor from circa 1894. This is a sturdy little construction and must weigh at least 25 pounds. It likely takes a 12" blade.

Very interesting design on your motor. I especially like the base on the one on the left, first image. Thanks for sharing.

Look at the pitch on those blades! I would love to see that thing running it must really blow some air. You say you have some of these early fans? I would love to see photos of them even if they aren't restored yet.

Hi William, please scroll up to the above images. Three photos above are of my ac Westinghouse fan motor sans blade. I simply need to have a blade reproduced to complete it. Here is a photo of my Philip Lange model. It too needs a blade.
