Of all the fans I see posted on the forum, I never see anything about the early Dayton models -- the Dayton Spinstart or the Dayton Archfoot.
I can't find photos with the search function other than those in the galleries.

Anyone have photos of these? The clumsy cage design of the Archfoot caught my eye and has inspired my post.

Just curious

There was a spin start at Fan Fair a number of years ago. It was cool since you could start it either direction. Grab the knurled knob & give her a spin.

Jack Johnston had a trio of early Dayton fans at Fanfair years ago and I took photos but don't know what year that was.   Is there an archfool on our gallery?  I think so.

That Archfoot was at my meet a few years ago. Forgot until I saw my truck in the background. Don’t remember who brought it, but sure it was Chuck, Randy, or Steve.

Cool ... Apparently the Dayton design guy once had lunch with the Meston design guy.
Both have models with the hanging switch.

The Meston did not have a hanging switch.   That was the Emerson Induction Motor you are referring to.   The Mestons all had a switch handle at the front of the motor protruding up through the top of the end bell.

The history behind this one is interesting.   A knowledgeable non fan collector was the owner.   He had the fan at a show I attended in Illinois and was under his table.  It was a radio collector show and I never saw the fan.  He contacted the AFCA and ultimately consigned the fan to the fanfare auction.  Not in attendance, I had a friend bid for me and won.   A different friend, Otto took the fan to Kansas City and I drove down to his house to pick it up.   It's blade and cage are steel copper wash.
