I don't have any current photos of my collection.  This photo is one corner of my office over at the shop.  Photo was taken at the 2008 fan meet.  Me on left near my desk, David Coyle checking out some of my collection.

Here are the fans at home, I think 6 or 7 more are at work stashed all over the place. This is the main fan, a 16 inch 1919 AOU.

the 3 amigos. An unrestored 1915 GE 2 star, a '26 whiz oscillator (my first steel resto) and a 6" GE type "G" I think.

Jerry, I love how you have your collection setup.  Where did you get your shelving?

Hello Larry, the baker's racks were a 2 year product promotion by Sam's Club back in the early to mid 90's. The first year they offered a 36" rack and sold out rather fast. The next year they offered a 48" rack and they too sold out in a hurry. They do make a nice statement for display as the top shelf holds 16" fans nicely, then the 2nd shelf is super for 8" blowers. The 3rd shelf will display 12" or 16" units well and the bottom is good for 12", 10" or 9" product. On my walls with this racking I maintain about 110 fully restored (NON GE) fans..........Of course I'm joshing to press my Floridian outlaw friend Franko the Fireman) As much as I enjoy my friend Kim, he's never been able to acquire a good fan, just single piston GEssssssssssssssss.

Good to hear from you, are you coming to Doc's in November?

Jerry, that is a really well organized and up-scale display.  Is this a basement room or separate building and any fans in the main part of the house?

Thanks kindly for the compliment Dale... For oh so many years my wife allowed my fans thruout the house after I filled up my 3 car garage and had built a 12 X 12 storage building for fans, but at the time of my retirement she kicked me out with the fans to display her choice of decor. Thus I built my Fanitorium and preserved my happy marriage.  The building is professionally constructed, insulated, heat & cooling, dehumidifier, big screen, pretty good sound system and I'm set up to survive for days there when my in-laws show up! 

I have but 4 fans in the house and they are users! Half of my Fanitorium is for display and the other half is for in-process finishing work, no major grinding, buffing, or machining that would dust the finished inventory.  My kids and Baby Grands now call it the FUNitorium.

I had posted my collection in a thread one year ago. Here's one photo but others are here-

http://afca.mywowbb.com/view_topic.php?id=7342&forum_id=1&highlight=TROJAN

That's what 9 years of Fanfairs plus pushing the ebay bid button can do. This year has fewer fans in my collection in spite of acquiring 8 more. Gotta make the collection fit into my house better.

Ten years ago we did a major remodel of our house and the deal was I could do whatever I decided in my office and my wife could decorate the master suite her way.   We also agreed to go 50-50 in the workout room.  The first floor is for the most part her domain.  There are only three fans on the first floor, these are two.

Peter,

Besides mounting them in your home, I invision a custom wooden rack with felt lined grooves to put the fans in side by side, blades detached of course.  Unless you have a large open building where you can actually install all of them...


thanx larry.

if anyones got a CF collection, then  he/she may please display it, no matter how ever untidy it may be.

Wow! This is an old thread! Among the earliest! I enjoyed that trip down memory lane! I wonder if these fans are still in their collections or how their tastes have changed in 8-9 years!

My, oh my !! what amazing collections!!  Gee Chuck, I think I'd add a few more shelf supports just to be sure.  Those are some boards filled with valuable iron!!


At least my dreams can be filled with similar treasures, even if my shelves can't.

Happy collecting!!

That's something like 70 fans in a very small area. I've got less that 40 total and I'm feeling a bit cramped in my cottage.

I guess there's a better way than what I'm doing.

That would be a California nightmare, though. Earthquakes!

Cheers,
Bill

Yes, some of use do have to be careful of earthquakes even though I have never had a big one hit me 20 miles north of the GG Bridge in the 50 + years I have been here.   A good friend and earthquake nut got me to secure my fans so they might (hopefully) stay up on the shelf when the shelves vibrate.  I attached a 1x2 poplar piece of wood to the studs just above my wall shelves.

And, to the eye hooks I installed at proper intervals, I hooked some little bungie cords from Harbor Freight around the top of the fan's base and into the hooks.   I also attached the shelf boards to the brackets which hadn't been done before I did the bungie thing.   Let her shake!   But give me some warning so I can get out of the house.









From Chuck's absolutely fabulous collection (above) I was able to acquire my first really old bipolar fan, this Crocker Wheeler.  The blade was an older reproduction and the fan motor was missing its switch but, with the help of another member, I was able to get a more proper blade and an original switch.  The fan runs great now and it one of my very favorites.   For a week or so I had it on my kitchen counter as a daily runner until I realized that, when the fan was running, you could barely see it and the danger of running into the fan was too great so back on the shelf it went.



Here is the correct (new) blade.

Well, it is mostly storage, but where do you display ceiling fans but on the ceiling.
