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?

Can you please take a close up picture of your tag at your convenience?
