Here is a 12 inch Eskimo 3 speed box fan I just acquired. It has the 3 wing blade as opposed to the 4 wing blade. It runs good but there is a slight rattling noise from the motor, particularly on low speed. I'm thinking when I get some time I will disassemble the motor and clean and oil the bearings and add a fiber washer if there is excessive end play in the shaft.

Very clean looking! Not sure I've ever seen the 3-blade version before!

MANY OF THE 3 BLADERS WERE AVOCADO OR YELLOW WITH WHITE GRILLES, THIS IS PRETTY NICE IN THE AQUA

I have the 20" version of your fan, mine also has a 3 wing blade as well. Mine though is missing its original handle as it had broken off years ago and the original owner just replaced it with an old wrought iron drawer pull, which works just fine for what it is. Mine too has a little bit of a rattling noise and I've replaced the original fibre washers and oiled the motor and everything and with mine it traced back to blades that were unbalanced (the blades were bent out of whack and no matter how I straightened them the fan still seemed to be noisier than it should be.)
Your fan is from the early 1960s from what little research I was able to do on my fan which is the big brother to your fan.

Good luck with your fan, they are nice fans when working properly.

I came across three of them at an auction didn't realize till I got them home two of them had three-blade the other one was a 4 blade. I thought it was odd as well till I read this post
