I've had a 12", 4 Blade, Westinghouse Tank with the Stencil style Cage Badge on the shelf for a very long time and decided to take it down and get it running again. My question is the model number. The Motor Badge shows a Style Number 105128B, Serial Number 390142, 100-110 VAC @ 60 Cycles.I first went to the Gallery and found nothing. I also entered the Style Number in the Search box and came up with nothing, so I thought I might enlist the help of others to find any info they might have.


Thanks,


John

John, I looked at a Notepad file titled "Westy Style Number Survey" (that I can't seem to remember where I got it), and the only 105 series Style No. I find is 105454 which is indicated to be an R&M by Westy lollipop 12" oscillator.  I think I may have gotten the Style Number Survey from Steve Stephens blog or maybe directly from him, but I'm probably wrong.  There are a couple of 10 series Style Numbers, 107988 for an R&M by Westy tank non-osc, and a 108706 Westy 16" tank, but that's it for anything approaching the Style Number you've got.  Jim

Jim, you probably did get the style number survey from me or I posted it.   It was compiled over many years by Bill Voigt and has come in handy in times like this and I am going too look at it right now to see what John's Style No. goes with.
John, can you confirm the number for us?  It is not on Bill's survey but I think he made up his survey mostly from the Westys he had and had seen.  Perhaps you have an uncommon or rare model.   Can you post a photo of the tag here?

Hey there Steve!  Somehow I thought that's where I got the Westy survey, but I couldn't come up with Bill Voigt's name associated with it.  Is the survey on the website here?  I looked and couldn't find it, but that's typical of me and why I always ask my wife where stuff is.  It's a great listing.  Thanks Steve.  Jim

Steve, Jim;

This is the best image I could shoot. The numbers appear to be engraved rather than stamped and are very faint.
Let me know what you think.
John

I'm at a loss here John.  Your Style No. is not listed anywhere, it's the common voltage and frequency and I see nothing that is unusual other than the Style No.   Is it possibly a 6 pole motor?  Those had higher Style Numbers; 133580 and 133581.   By 1909 at least Westinghouse was up to 115xxx Style Nos. (133 cycle fans) and yours is before that number so it seems to fit in with regular tank production times.

Could that style number have something to do with a special number of speeds?

It's a 2 speed like other Westy Tanks

It's possible that someone at the factory stamped the wrong number on the tag although that seems pretty unlikely.
