Found this for a tenspot.  2 holes on front i thought were for a missing badge but are oilers.  So i grabed the spray lube and stuck the straw done in there and never saw it again!  well now i notice there are no screws on this thing and the straw can live there at least till it starts doing the card in the spoke dance.  Round vents must come off to get at the motor or a big can opener.  Gauge of metal and paint remind me of AGM for sure.  Has a 3 speed switch that feels like the westy's from the same era.  Runs good and throws pretty good though the shaft has a little "wobtublience".  Had planned on using it to pull hot air from the top of my work shack and blow it out at floor level, have enough flex duct to do it.

"Wobtublience"... Have you watch any of Shango066's Videos? I'm wondering because that's the kind of word he would use to describe something that's not working right. 

That fan is indeed from the 1940s, the switch on there is a Cutler-Hammer switch, which was used by Westinghouse, McGraw-Edison, and Dominion just to name a few companies.

There's another thread in here that covers this particular fan, but I don't remember who posted it.

I would be careful about putting duct on the fan. It is designed to pull a designated ampere rate at the static pressure it develops. Check the amp draw on the tag and verify it with a clamp on amp meter. As you add duct, make sure that the current does not exceed the name plate rating by more than a percent or percent and a half, otherwise, your fan motor may overheat and burn out.

Instead of a breeze at the ankles, it would cool more of you and of course no metal blades to stick your foot into. These are the most common fan I've ever run across up here. They also made a Queen Super Blower. I've only heard of two of these blowers..
