SOLD -- I am offering my Crocker-Wheeler DC fan for sale at my original cost -- $7,500. I bought this in 2010 from Alan Willms, who did the amazing restoration. He plated the blades, cage, attachment plug and other hardware in nickel. Over the past decade this nickel has toned beautifully and has taken on a very authentic-looking patina. (It could easily be polished back to bright nickel if you so desire -- I prefer this look.) It runs fantastically, with incredible power. You can see it in operation in an old video of mine at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06P_t58sjYY&t=15s

This was made when the company was still in NYC, before moving to Ampere, NJ in 1893. So it's an early example.

I can send additional pictures by email on request. 

Please contact me at rene@rondeau.net rather than by PM as I don't log in often.
