I posted about this fan last Dec. and now I have it. It was in a bar for decades. Then it was stored in the basement. This thing has so much crud on it. Smoke,dust,dirt,cooking greese,you name it. I might have to use a hammer and chisel to get it off Haha. The first thing I did was to wipe off the name tags. Not even going to attempt to turn it on.Would this fan be considered a" find in the wild"? Best part didn't have to pay a dime for it! :up:
  It's a Westinghouse Whirl-Aire Style 921394, Cat # 22FT-3. Does that indicate that it is a 22" 3 speed? It's got 5 wires coming out of the motor.
Can't wait to start restoring this one but I already have 3 fans in the fire now. :shock:



Micarta blades. Anyone have a cage badge?









What is this hole for?

Interesting project!

Maybe that hole allowed for the original cord to exit?

It's a large diameter one Alex. Not the smaller one as on the small Vader fans. Probably could be scaled up though. And they're dark brown in color.

Thanks Lane. The badges are vectorized so they can be scaled any which way and not lose their quality. Cheers! I'll get back to you soon Vic!

Enjoy your'sLane, I have done a search on this fan and information states that it has a bronze finish. Do you know what part of the fan has the finish? Thanks

Mine had surviving paint, though not salvageable. I found a Rustoleum "metallic" paint, though I'd have to look up the color,  that matched good enough to keep the original look. Look at Home Depot and it'll probably be obvious. Though it's not exact and can't be used for touch up (I tried) . I then coated it with Rustoleum Satin Clear to approximate the original Satin/semi gloss sheen. 

My whole fan was that color. Base, motor, blades, cage.

This is something I found in search from Russ Huber that he posted years back.



The model that I have indicates that it is a 2 speed. Thanks Tony
