I have one of these fans and I love it! It is such a workhorse! We have it in our living room / dining room area.

I ran across my example in recent past. I avoid giving circulators a home anymore. I couldn't resist this one as it was in such good shape and unique looking. Yes, your are on target, this is a Vornado copy cat that channels a tunnel of wind like a bullet through a barrel.  :D

I have to replace or fix the switch as I have a missing low speed. The motor is like new.  Thanks for you kind words, not necessary as I enjoy sharing the knowledge. :clap:

I found one with what appears to be an earlier badge and motor.

Interesting. It appears they removed the rear oil port on the later models.

Jenn, so you have the same motor as this model?
