I want to buy a vornado "lookalike" made by Gilbert that sits in a ring and oscillates. Anyone with one that wants to sell contact me at mcvea@bellsouth.net. Thank you, Walker McVea

I think the collector common name for that is the "divers helmet fan" Walker.

Go easy taking the motor out of the tin can housing. Very cool looking, very cheaply made.  :D

Yes. Those 2 are exactly what I am looking for. Sell them to me if you want to let them go. Walker McVea

I beg to disagree on these being cheaply made. I have been through this entire fan excluding the fan motor which needed nothing more than a good oiling and find it very well done up in its complexity. The fan not only oscillates but is easily adjustable to move it more to one side than another with the lever in back. No offence, but these are easily as well made as the Vornado and we all agree that it is well made. Walker McVea
