This guy is selling a 1915 Menominee 12 inch oscillating fan on Wausau Craigslist He stated that is runs only on one speed &  he is asking $575 but he is reluctant to ship it He sad it is not a Staghorn model  Just putting this out there if anyone is interested

I don't have clue who he is. Nor am I interested in the fan. Good luck!

Looks like the seller is familiar with our website, or has been researching the web to get the best bang for his buck on Craigslist. This way the seller can HOPEFULLY skip the ebay hassle and expenses and sell the fan without shipping. 

The coned base was introduced in 14. Menominee started limiting brass trimmings in 17. The fan could date 14-16. So the seller needs to do more research limiting the fan to 15. 

FWIW...nothing intended offensive as to my opinions expressed above. It's just logical. :D

I actually have that fan's much rarer little brother the 1915 8" Staghorn Oscillator which is has a universal AC/DC motor that uses brushes to run. The Menominee referenced here in this thread is the AC Only Model which isn't as rare as the universal models.

I never knew much about Menomine fans until today. I thought I would throw  this  post out there to see if a member close to the seller might be interested in buying it I like the smaller fans they take up less space to store them

Nice fan I believe yours is a bit rarer because of the brass fittings?

 I believe that's whats referred to as the Snowflake model if I'm not mistaken which is the AC Only Model that Menominee made.

the little brass fittings on top of the oscillator engagement screw on Russ' fan is the same thing my Staghorn Oscillator has ontop of its oscillator engagement knob, that was on the Menominee oscillating fans between 1913 and 1915, if I'm not mistaken, by 1916 they went over to the knurled knob only arrangement on the oscillator gearbox.

No Russ I'm not saving up to buy an Aston Martin! I'm just looking for a good 4X4 or AWD vehicle to get me through the snow drifts in the winter.

These are web images, not mine. The tab base is the earliest. The cone base with the 1st generation oscillator engagement is second. The seller on Craigslist runs 3rd generation.


Levi needs to get a car, so he is neutral for any of the Menominees above.

Nope! Not interested in a $500,000 Aston Martin, way too rich for my blood!

I'm more interested in a Jeep Grand Cherokee or a Dodge Journey.
