Nothing has so captivated my imagination more than the thought of a 16", yoke-mount, cast iron fan with a 6 wing blade. The 16" pancakes don't cut it and the 16" Trojans even less so... is there such a beast out there that can satify my Massive Fan craving? :eyes

I would bet Emerson at some point did a non-oscillating 6 wing 16" fan. I would look at the Emerson model info on the afca page to be sure.

I already know they did, what I want is a trunnion mounted one with a big motor, pancake size or even larger.

 you're looking for an Emerson 1320. lots o' luck on that search they be really rare. I've got a 6-wing 16" Westy tank hot rodded out of a ventilator fan.

I think there's only 1-2 of the 1320 fans reported on the Emerson survey

Do you know where you could get a pic of one?

It would look like this, but with a taller stem on the base and the bigger blades and cage...I would assume that the motor would be the same size, but with coarser windings to spin the larger, heavier blade-set...this is the 1320's little brother, the 1310. The 1320 would fill your bill nicely. Check your local Salvation Army, or Unique thrift store...:D

Here are pictures of my 1320. I purchased this fan way back in 1993 for the grand total of $150 in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia. This fan had been used in a local doctor's office for many years. To my knowledge, there are only two of these known -- mine and one in a St. Louis Emerson collection. I wish such bargains were still in abundance.

Here is the second image. The motor is actually quite a bit thicker than one would find on a 1310. It too is a six pole motor and it turns a blade set with virtually no pitch.

Very interesting photo! I note that the base has the later ball between stem and trunnion as on the 1610 and up. I have never seen one of these...

Yes, that is one of the interesting features of this fan. I would date my fan to 1905-6 based on its serial numbers in relationship to the Emerson survey, although I believe this model was in production as early as 1904.

Stefan! Thanks for posting... now that I think about it, I think you posted that fan before and that may be why the number 1320 sounds so familiar. That thing is very cool! I can't imagine it weighing less than 30lb. :up:

Now, I know that keeping a fan like this all original is probably in most people's best interests since it is so rare but I cannot imagine how good it would look after a complete restoration. The paint doesn't need to be reworked in the least, just cleaned lightly. Everything else would benefit from simple straightening, especially on the cage and struts.

Glad to post photos Nick. This fan probably weighs somewhere in the vicinity of 40 pounds! It runs smoothly and moves a lot of air. I have a strong feeling that this fan was intended for commercial air circulation rather than domestic use. It is one of the most well built fans I have encountered. I intend to go through this fan in the near future. I'll simply clean it up, replace the switch/speed coil, and straighten the cage. But with the rigorous demands of graduate school, my time for fan work is somewhat limited.

An interesting question is: could this be the last non-oscillating 16 in 6 blade model

Emerson made?  Of course there were always 12 in "residence fans" -

non-oscillating models through the 19666 and oscillators until the end of the

71666 in the '30s.  But to my knowledge the next 16 in 6 blade model was

the 24668 oscillator at the end of 1916 or early 1917.

There is no 19xxx-....non-oscillating 6 wing 16" table fan. That is....until you make one Bill.:up:

I have a hunch that this is the earliest and the only stationary six blade fan made by Emerson prior to their later six bladed oscillating fans such as the 24668. If there are any Emerson experts out there, please share your thoughts.

Anyone have the Emerson catalog 2660?:wondering: Wonder if the 320,420,620 models were in there? Anybody have one of those Emerson 16 fans? :wondering:
