As promised, the fans are back. I will keep the thread to about two weeks worth of fans and then will start anew.

Up for viewing is this old thing. I wish I could tell you something about it but I can't, so I'll let the pictures speak........

Yep, no Phillips head screws until the 30's. Invented by a Mr. Thompson apparently.....

Good eye....

Those screws were made under Foss' designs. State of the art and ahead of their time.

Even though it is an Emerson, I replaced those Phillips with some GE brass slotted screws, to give it a bit of class....

 Most early fans with GE screws only start if you hold them upside down.
