New to the fan collecting community!  I purchased a 1956 Westinghouse 10-LA-4 table fan.  It was new in the box!  Ran smooth and quiet with lots of power.  Liked it so much that I started watching other vintage fans on Craigslist/Marketplace.  Found a 1953-1955 GE Vortalux fan that looked in good shape for a good price.  Brought it home, serviced it (new grease in the gearbox, oil and wick for the front bearing) and it runs beautifully.  The sound and gentle air movement is very relaxing.  Motor gets warm, but not hot.  Pretty exciting.  Here's a picture of those signature blades!
