I was at Lafayette Collectibles & Flea Market in Lafayette, CO last weekend, and there is a Westy Tank in the booth next to the entrance. Supported yoke, Stenciled badge, etc. It seemed to be in very good condition. I didn't touch it, but it looked like the switch was intact. Working condition unknown. It looked to be in great shape and could definitely be a stunner. Booth owner had it priced at $250, so if anyone's in the area looking for a tank, that's where you can find one. Cheers!


I have nothing to do with this tank or the booth owner

Westy tanks are getting cheap.

Which still makes no sense to me. They seem like the only pre-1910 fans that always change in value.

I'm surprised if Westy tanks are getting cheap(er)?    They are a wonderful earlier fan and probably the most breeze for the buck on old cast iron and brass fans.   Good looking, run well and most know that they were built like a tank.  Do people dislike that most are only two speeds?   With some looking or luck you can get a 6 wing or DC version to add to your collection and there are enough variations to make a nice collection in 12" and 16" fans.   Made in single, two (most of them) and three speeds.
I wish tank prices had been down when I bought this DC 16" one.  But note two things:
The early cast hub blade (c.1905-06)
The beautiful patina.

Amazing. I need to get more early DC fans. I have the GE, and I just recently came into possession of an AC or DC Carleton.
