I was repatinating an antique lamp base and wanted something to move some air around and nearby I had this Zephair that a friend of mine rescued from the back room of an antique store a few weeks ago. I cleaned it up and relubed it while I waited for the lamp base to dry.

Whats the general concensus on these fans? I think they're good air movers, pull around .9 amps on high and .7 on low. Other than I HATE the cage strut design, good overall fans.

My question is, when does the black bladed fans fit in the timeline? I have a few marked Century, a few marked Zephair and a few with the the thin blades (later design).

GREAT RUNNING FANS, I HAVE ABOUT 7 OF THEM. I THINK THEY ARE 40's FANS AND INTO THE EARLY 50'S. THE ONES THAT SAY CENTURY WERE THE EARLY ONES WHEN THE COMPANY WAS IN FULTON  NEW YORK. THE ONES THAT SAY ZEPHAIR WAS WHEN THEY MOVED TO MEMPHIS TENN. IT WILL SAY IT ON THE BASE TAG. THEY BOUGHT OUT CENTURY AND USED THE NAME FOR A WHILE.

Hunter made there move around 46 to Memphis, and became a division of R&M in 49.

As usual you guys got the smarts. Mine is a Memphis Hunter model, so I suppose it dates between 46 and 49. Sweet running fan.

These are extremely robust fans! I have a 12" R&M-badged version and it runs like a champ!!
