How do you tighten up the tension on the motor to the base so that it does flop over?

A three foot'er .  :up:    The thumb screw on the base is supposed to do it but sometimes you have to really tighten it but be careful not to break it off.

Thanks Mel. It is a truly a wonderful fan. I was surprise by how light it is compared to the 16 inch round ball DC. This is more of a desk fan...the other is heavy!

No...not lucky.  Sometimes it just pour and there times I'd had dry spells and wait forever.  These are fans I'd been hoarding for quite awhile.

Yours is an early transitional Eck. Eck Dynamo eventually dumped the 3 foot base to 4, cast struts to steel, and a new patented guard and badge for the 10 fan motor season. 

What is up with the 2 tags one over the other on the base, Louis?

Eck's guard/badge patent wasn't issued until late fan motor season 1910. Being the patent wasn't filed until Aug. of 09, your fan would date 1910. Eck it appears must of had a mix of 3 and 4 tab bases in 10.

My three foot Eck.


And the base tag-





Don Coleman was working with me for information so he could make some tags.   His first try had a wrong date which he caught and remade the tag, getting the details much crisper than on my original base tag.




Corrected date-

That green Eck motor looks like the one that was on eBay Argentina forever. The one on eBay was mounted to a pole.

When did Eck Dynamo change the oscillating mechanism seen on these fan motors? Anyone?  :wondering:

But I do have an AC oscillator with base tag patent Aug 23, 1910 if I am reading it correctly in a mirror.

If it is a DC Eck with the last patent date of Aug. 23, 1910 on the base tag, the fan dates 1911-16. After 1910 until 1916 Eck made little to no changes to their DC line of fan motors.


Eck fan motors were transitional in 1910 being a new guard and 4 tab base, but the guard patent was not issued until early fall, or the tail end of 1910 fan motor season and sales.

If you want to find the holey grail of the dirt early Eck mechanical oscillators, The tag will NOT have the Goldmark & Wallace name on the tag. Eck dropped the G&W agency 03 season for sure. Possibly 04 as well.
