This gal must have been an attic sitter for many years when the owner "went AC".

This is a 12 inch fan.

There is very little wear to the motor.  The brushes, etc were tweaked by Randy Rohr (thanks again Randy) and she runs nice and sweet on 3 distinct speeds.  I have been running her a couple of hours a night for 2 weeks now on low and the base (with the nichrome coil) barely gets warm and the motor is cool to the touch. 


The brass has been hand polished by my wife Theresa (Thanks  again) and has not been buffed on a wheel or coated.


The paint is 80% or so but she has a good "money shot" head on.  The pinstripes were badly oxidized but are still visible.


New
wicks and power wire (Thanks again Will), new felt, vintage plug.   One of those thingies containing Maxwell's Demons that change AC electrons into DC electrons in the base.

  The fan "as found" can be seen in this thread:

Tom, that link does not work. Can you fix as I would like to see the as-found pics again. Nice fan by the way. I have recently gotten my 15050 up and running. It's a 30 volt version of your fan. This whole series of R&M fans from the early teens can't be beaten. They outdo GE and Emerson and Westinghouse fans of the period and probably most other makes too.

PS: and now your link is working for some reason.
PS: and now (later) it isn't working again. But a few moments later it will work.

Someone should go for this!! These are sweet running fans and I love their profile with the bulbous base, wide trunnion and rounded motor, and you can never go wrong with an open commutator!!

I think so also.  It is one I found "in the wild".  I do admit to allowing it to gather some dust, but the motor has Randy Rohr's blessing and I won't budge on the price.


It does bring a smile every time I see it in the workshop.  I use oscillating fans in the house so it does not get much use.


I am happy to keep it but it is available.
