Hi all! In the spirit of this thread I started over a year ago (http://www.afcaforum.com/view_topic.php?id=24855&forum_id=1) I'd like to ask you all once again what your top three wish list fans are for 2014. 

I'll start:

1) 16" Victor Lollipop
2) Thomas Edison six blade C-Frame
3) 16" Jandus Roundball C-Frame oscillator

Looking forward to hearing about everyone else's dream fans :)

Just this super common Emmy,
pictured below.

Should be an easy find, ya think?

But seriously, a feather vane would be a
nice 2014 find.  An Edison iron-clad and
a tripod Meston also make the list.

This will never happen, but I can hope!!!:
1) 1887 C & C lamp resistant bipolar
2) Edison iron clad with glass back
3) 1892 bipolar Crocker Wheeler
This is more like it:
1) 12" lollipop victor or R &M
2) 1899 GE pancake
3) Tim's Peerless kick start

Steve-

The forum software is all kinds of screwed up and the club is much in need of an upgrade. The work around to the problem you've described is to enter two lines every time you want one line and three lines every you want two! 

Sometimes the forum works right and sometimes it doesn't so always preview your posts to make sure its right.

Thanks Tim.

I usually do the three lines to get two but sometimes forget and used that last post of mine to see what the deal is.  I don't know why a forum should go for so long with that kind of problem and not sure it's something that Larry could fix or it's in the software.

I hope I can nail an image with clarity in the old books of the front of that blade.  The owner can than make the correct blade for this fan with nearly full confidence.  That fan is outstanding.  I am confident Belding stole early motor construction ideas from Cuttriss.

I have a feeling that its the software and nothing Larry can fix. We desperately need new forum software, in my opinion, but alas I'm got zero exeprience with how to do it so can't be of any assistance. Regardless, back on topic. 

Russ- That means tell us the other two fans on your wish list!

Edward Johnson had a business partnership with Sigmund Bergmann to the benefit of the Edison lighting system starting in 81.  It is claimed in a 94 article Johnson was sticking fan blades on Edison motors as early as 82. 
 
Bergmann supported Johnson's claim in a letter directed to Johnson.  He stated there was catalogue material from 82-83 sporting fan motors through the Edison catalogues.  Bergmann went on to say this does not even support Johnson's experiments with fan blades on Edison motors prior to 82. 
 
Bergmann & Company was formed when Edison asked Johnson to team up with Bergmann and his growing company.  Edison offered additional funding to Bergmann's company growth if Johnson would jump in.  Pretty sure that is how I read it.
 
So......Bergmann & Co. to the benefit of Edison should have fan motors shown in 82-83 catalogues.  Ya....you can ad one of those to my list.
 
Johnson admits in the 94 article he never even considered patenting a bladed fan motor back in the early 80s.  The 94 article was based on Wheeler's claim to be Mr. Fan.  The facts are is Wheeler had nothing himself physically or through documentation to support he had a fan motor prior to 86.  Personally, I think Wheeler spent a lot of time admiring himself in the mirror.

An antique CF, never used, in its original box or crate. I would love to find that in a barn somewhere!

Hey Tim,

good topic,

Being  A bit realistic for my first choice,
 
an Emerson 27666 or earlier Emerson six blade.
any fan with feet :wondering:,

 and

 a whole (big motor) cake, even one of  the other off brands, like GE.

I hope to get a bipolar of some sort. It's a mystery right now what sort of bipolar it is. A man I've known for 20 years found out I collect old fans about a year and a half ago and told me about one he has in a storage shed that was given to him by his late uncle around thirty years ago. Shortly after he told me about the fan, he had to have heart surgery, so he hasn't been able to dig it out of his shed. He described it as having two large coils and an open motor. His uncle started working with one of the railroads after high school and made a career out of it, and my friend thinks the fan came out of an old passenger train car or a caboose. Other than that one, which not knowing what it is has been been nagging at me, I don't have anything specific... just anything really old I find in the wild.

2. A Victor tank

3. Coin op GE

I didn't find any of mine from last years list. Almost got the Gyro but lost out for $200.00 locally. At least saw an ornate based DC Emerson at Fan Fair. Never even saw a WE BiPolar.

I'll have to settle for everything else I found or picked up last year...

Hey, one of those and a flux capacitor and I'll go back in time and buy these fans new. Get me a couple hundred dollars, and put your order in!
