Someone has done some restoration. There is no way that brass has stayed like that for over 100 years.

It's still a mighty fine looking fan although I would have preferred the brass not be polished.    I had seen some of these DC toilet bowl Diehls but was never able to get one.

A plug for Bill Refakis:   His collecting scheme was based and weighted heavily on pristine examples of fans.  I found what what I considered a perfect Emerson DC 16" cast iron hub blade that was on the wrong fan.  Bill wanted to upgrade a fan he had and bought my blade.   Upon his inspection, he pointed out that my blade was not perfect.  I offered a refund but Bill decided to keep it since it was "slightly better" than the blade he was replacing.  I wouldn't hesitate to buy anything he offered for sale.

I have recently purchased a fan from Bill Refakis' collection.  If I had not already spent this money, I would be thinking seriously about this d.c. Diehl.  I agree with John Trier-- Bill has very nice stuff!

I agree it is a beautiful fan, but not unrestored.

This fan is unrestored. Cleaning brass does not constitute a restoration.



Bill,

Is this 32v? Could you post an image of above the switch lever?

Legal definition of restored in California is "as new or better" Below that level there is refurbished, reconditioned, serviced, or cleaned. This one is cleaned.
Cheers,
Bill

Hi for the good words, thanks guys! 
regarding this fan, a fan with all its original parts and paint can hardly be restored.
 going forward on a fan that is an original unrestored example with any kind of preservation , I will note that preservation

Note on a MILLION DOLLAR comic book light cleaning and pressing WILL NOT BE NOTED AS RESTORATION ( as per grading service)
nothing I  sell will ever be 100% original because I did not buy it new
I am known world wide in the antique Cadillac world as an EXPET ON LOW MILE ORIGINAL CARS
google me

That said, to any SINCERE INTERESTED BUYER I will send 100 photos and take apart for examination anything you want to see

In 44 years of Cadillac collecting I have never shown a car, reason ? Always the expert that comes over to educate me about my car, but when I ask him about his, he has never owned one!

SO here we have an original unrestored Diehl with light preservation
Noted preservation, light polish and lacquer on blades and guard, blade has never been apart all wings, rivets and hub are original

by the way, for $200you can pick up the BMY version of this fan for original guard and blade they are common and correct

hope this gets us on the right road
thanks
Bill

It’s a beautiful fan Bill!  Don’t mind the haters.  We’re all fan friends and I can never understand why some members feel compelled to pick apart fans that people are trying to sell and point out all of the flaws. 

The polite way to point out an inaccuracy is to private message the seller with your observations and comments. Then it’s up to the conscience of the seller to correct the ad. Otherwise it is simply an attack of the integrity of the seller to point it out in a public manner.  


In my opinion the buy, sell , trade area is not the area to express your negative opinions of someone’s fan- especially if you have no intention of buying it.  Positive comments are always welcomed of course. 


My 2 cents.

Bill, it would be nice to have a duo of Diehl toilet bowl oscillators, one that runs, like yours, on "Deadly Current" together with the one I so have with a GE BMY motor that can simply be plugged into the wall to get the "Acceptable Current" needed to run it.   I agree, your fan is unrestored but with, as you say, some polishing of the brass.   I do have a Deadly Current Diehl and am no longer looking for fans to add to my collection.   With all original finish including the brass, my 9" early Diehl stationary fan c.1906.   Your fan is great and rarely seen.  My AC version of your toilet bowl has three cage struts giving it a distinctly different frontal view from your 4-strut cage.
