Apparently this hung from the ceiling and you would take a stick or something and poke it in the direction you wanted it to blow? Anyone know anything about it? Or maybe a one fan gyro.

Nick, check to see you bearing caps are cast brass. If so, that is an early operator center fan. Also check to see if your style number indicates it is a 6 pole motor typical of the operator center fans.

Forget it Nick, your bearing caps a pot metal. You can tell by the bearing cap slope down to the oil cup. Yours is a later model.

Russ,
remember several yrs. back I got one of these  hanging fans   was on a home made stand .I had pictures of it here and cant find them now and I cant find them on my computer.
I have it at this time on a pedestal base but would like to find the proper  parts to making a hanging fan again.
Imay get a current picture of it later today.

Nick,
here is some info  on my  fan
Style
N252369
Serial    2155443
 these numbers are on the top left of the tag 4855  ( 110-2-23 )
This one has the pot metal bearing holders.
Im kind of in the process to make it in to a pedestal .
It is upside down of what it should be.
