Found one of these in an antique mall. Going back to see if she will come off the price a little. Has anyone ever seen one of these? It's a Rosalba, made in Argentina and runs on propane I guess much like a Lakewood. Please some input.





Going to take some more pics too.

Kind of neat...a Pedestal version of a hot air fan.

Hey Louis, I couldn't do much better than a back shot. The fan is in an antique store and is crammed in a corner of a booth. She wouldn't let me pull it out so the three pictures were about all I could get. I'm going to work on her to come down on the price a little. I enjoyed your video and hope to own one like yours soon.
Dan

Dan, we had the same example as yours in the museum. It runs nicely on propane.

Not a lot to tell. I had to machine a new gas jet for it. Other than that, it was in pretty good shape.... Pull the cover, turn on the propane and light the burner, then replace the cover and let it heat up for 30 seconds or so and then give the blade a spin. Should take right off. This is the example we use when people want to see a sterling engine in operation.
