  Picked up 2 more fans today.  Need help with the Info on them. I never seen one of these Peerless models style # BB-1 10 before and would like to know about it. As far as the pancake would like to know year and if there is anything that may not be original for this model. Always get lots of help from fellow members and as always it’s much appreciated.

Awesome finds Michael.  👍 I would like to tell you I’m providing information but I’m not that smart. Instead I am curious if the Peerless is a centrifugal start? You’re lucky it still has the badge. Mine looks like yours and I’m trying to pin down the correct model number. Again, sweet finds.

Your pancake is an Aunt Jemima?  Do you remember her?  Sweet thing and very syrupy.  1907 is the model year and I don't see anything that is not original.  It even has the original cardboard base "plate' added on the 1905 models and those great struts where the cage can be easily removed from the struts.

I have a front oscillator version of your stationary Peerless which is a 12" fan isn't it?  Mine runs exceptionally well and quietly and oscillates as smoothly as any fan I have.   Very nice fan I would say and no pot metal on my fan.   I can't find the photos I have of mine and it's buried where it is hard to extract.  Whoops, my fan is a Colonial which is a clone of the Peerless, virtually no differences other than the name and even made in the same factory.  Mine is an OB-1-10 and all I have to do is to call is a Colonial and my photos come right up.  Does this look like yours other than the oscillating features?  If your fan runs close to as well as mine does it should be a keeper.   It is an early one with the brass cage badge and hidden cage badge fixing nut on the back of the badge.  Our fans are not represented at all in our gallery.  They are uncommon but not especially rare.

Yes Steve it is a 12” fan. The fan does run excellent in all 3 speeds and super smooth. My fan looks identical to uours other than the ocsillator and name. As far as the pancake I was worried about the struts being original and if they still used the pinned cage on the later models. Not all speeds are working on the Ge due to a few disconnected wires. I have to figure out where they go. Thanks for the info Steve.

Your struts are correct for 1907 and the pinned cage was still being used.

  Trying to remove the GE's switch to solder some broken wires. How do you remove the pointer so I can get the switch out? Tried pulling on it but won't budge.

Try a penetrant, but be neat with it.

I have the same Peerless and it's a great air-mover, and undoubtedly the heaviest in my humble collection!  Mike Baudette...hmmm...should we expect you to "leave the light on"? :P

Hey Michael, I was still wondering if the Peerless is a centrifugal start or not. I love the click click click of css motors.

I also have a 12” that looks just like Michael’s that is a css motor. It is missing the badge so I don’t know the correct model number. The only reason I talked myself into buying it was the clicking. 😬 I love the way tanks sound and the Peerless sounded the same.

Curiousity got the better of me last night and I dug and lugged some heavy cast iron fans out from under a shelf to see if my Colonial has a centrifugal start.   No, it doesn't; starts quiet as can be and end up quiet also.  Could there be an earlier model year like the BMYs that did have the centrifugal start?   I'm not very familiar with these Colonial and identical Peerless fans as this is the only one I have owned.
