i bought this, because I didn't want it to go to a scrap heap. My untrained eye told me that it was another Emerson Floor Column. I was mistaken. It is a Westinghouse. I'm still poking around to see what I can learn about it. My expectations are not especially great. Nevertheless, I was surprised that it is a Westinghouse.

Later than ones I am familiar with, Whirl-Aire  and such.  Blade does look to be counter-clockwise, so it could be a "real" Westy.

This animal was sitting in there as well. I decided to let sleeping dogs lie.

I don't think it is a Westy, I think it is a 40s or early 50s circulator with a Westinghouse motor. In the hayday of these, there were a ton of manufacturers who outsourced motors, blades, & guards, then assembled the fans under their name. Looks like a nice shop fan!

I bet that is one noisy powerful beast! It looks like a converted tube axial someone built. One heck of a spot cooler!

Looks like a frozen turkey shredder to me.
