For my 50th video I present this antique Emerson Type 57568 Ventilator Fan. It was made in 1923.

It's an uncommon 50 Cycle model that was likely originally installed in the Los Angeles area, which was on 50 Cycle current until 1948. This one has a weird issue with the motor where there is a dead spot in the rotating magnetic field in one specific spot on the motor. You can spin the fan past this spot and momentum will keep it going, but it runs rough.

Enjoy the show!

I love those giant 16” Parker blades, especially in a six blade configuration. This is a very cool fan indeed, I would love to have one!
