I'm Aaron, relatively new to the fan collector game, I've been creeping the forum for a while and now feels like a good time to start posting a little... and may become a member when schools done and I have a decent job.

Fans I own: 
Emerson Northwind 450k
Emerson 6250f "Golden Jubilee"
1931 Signal "Cool Spot"  

I have a great appreciation for what the work our forefathers did and their level of craftsmanship that went into these pieces. Right now I'm running the 450 and it boggles me that something so old still exists and works better as an air circulator then lets say a Vornado 630... and will probably outlast it.

I don't see my self as being an avid collector in the sense of owning a ton of them, but restore and give as gifts to family and friends, The Signal fan is going to be stripped, refurbished, and japanned as a wedding gift and I'll post the results when it's finished.

Ultimately I'm hoping one day to save up enough money to get a nice Lasko and move away to a far away land. Anyway, cheers everybody!

Fan collecting?   :wondering:


Sounds like the onset of a
psychiatric disorder!   :shock:

Oh yes I will be posting results and all info/pics towards the method. Among terrible weather and testing, it'll be up sooner then later!
