The fan will not move much air until it is rotated into position. In other words, it doesn't work well inside the cabinet.......

This model uses a Diehl motor. The other example in the museum has a Westinghouse motor in it. I don't know if the third example out there uses either of those two motors.....

Lithograph on front. This is the very first fan I restored for Fanimation, way back in 2003.

i had one of those and mine came from Kansas City which is where that company was located.  It seems they had the misfortune of getting their patent just months before the Great Depression got under way.also, as i recall, that one has a Diehl fan inside whereas mine has a DC Westinghouse as is shown in the patent drawings.  Mine was all original condition and ran really smooth with the DC Westy.....You can see a video of the one i had by going to youtube and searching either "Buckley Cabinet Fan" or "luap216"
Kim, thanks for taking the time to post these photos of all these rare and awesome fans.  And Thanks for showing all the angles rather than only the front view!!!

BTW, this fan was designed by A.H. Buckley.  I could have sworn someone found some original literature for this fan.  May have been Jim McCarter but not certain.

I would think if you move the blades toward the grill that it would move air like the westinghous reviera fan

Paul, thank you for the information. Yours must have been the third one I have seen of these. We have a second one in the museum that came from another collector. It has the a.c. Westinghouse motor and is in it's original condition. The one I restored couldn't be salvaged in it's originality. It was broken in several areas of it's cabinet and had been repaired by a less than experienced person....I'm happy to show the fans that are in the museum and we appreciate all the input, because on a lot of the fans, all we have is a manufacturer. I'll keep posting the pics and I hope you and Russ and the others will keep filling in the blanks. Good to hear from you Paul......

Hey Jon, I've got the fan on the Dental Tower powered up and have the variable speed dialed in on the drilling engine. It's all ready for your next visit.....What was it that you were telling me last time?..."I don't need no stinking novocaine"....

Also go lucky on mine in that is had it's badge nailed to the inside of the cabinet:

THE YEAR-ROUND CABINET FAN

manufactured by

YEAR-ROUND CABINET FAN COMPANY

823 Gloyd Bldg., Kansas City, Mo.

Pat. Applied For    Series Number 10

Got lucky in finding this.  It's the old 'right place at the right time'.  Was at an antique shop in Iowa back in 2005.  Was done shopping and on my way out and a dealer was bringing in some items.  I was lucky that they had the fan turned out or I might not have looked at it much closer.  Needless to say the cabinet fan didn't even make it into the shop.

It was sold to Tom, but I'm not sure of where the seller got it. It's in nice original condition and just needed a bit of repair to make it whole again.....

Kim,
It is great that you are doing this, I had no idea that the majority of the fans you have shown existed. Will you show what is believed to be the oldest fan in the museum?  Also would it be possible to date the fans you're sharing?  I find it interesting to see the progression of design and innovation.
Thanks,
Rick

Fidelity Electric Co. placed their first BRUSHED MECHANICAL oscillating alternating current desk fan motor on the market with RIB base in 1909.  It was not until the 1912 fan motor season that Fidelity dumped the rib base and adopted the SMOOTH base design.

I can trace Fidelity making these primitive built like a tank fan motors through at least the 1919 fan motor season. I would imagine many of them met their fate in the WW1 and especially the WW11 scrape metal drives based on the raw materials gained.

The image dates 1919.

Rick, I will take a look and see what I can find as to what might be the oldest fan on display. I depend on all of you to add the information on the fans I post. Russ is doing an awesome job filling in the blanks, as are many others. I have a limited knowledge on the history of GE pancakes and the coin ops and after that, I'm clueless. My goal is to bring an awareness to the membership that we (the AFCA) actually have a museum to show off our fans. Every fan in here is on loan to the AFC Museum by us, the Fan Collectors, and that without that generosity, we would just have an empty space to dust.

Thanks Kim, 
I wasn't aware all of the fans were on loan, pretty nice jesture on the part of the members, shows what a great organization we have.  Appreciate all of the knowledge that is freely shared, I know it has helped me much.  On the way south to Louisville From Michigan I will stop by the museum and take a look.Thanks again for sharing.

Russ,

In regards to post 113 I believe these two Pennsylvania made polishing, dental or jewelers lathes were made by Fidelity, even though one is marked Silverman. One has the movable brushes, the other does not, but is variable speed. 

What do you think? 

Bill
