What kind of fan is it anyway? Looks like a modern cheap reproduction.

It looks like one of those cheap Hunters you'd see at walmart.

It is October. Maybe meant to be scary? A lot of modern (post 1970s) fans scare me, because they make me think I'll need to buy another fan the next year.

I believe it is Pat Daggs fan pictured on page 7 of the issue. Editor of Fan Collector and her favorite fan. Hope she doesn't cancel your subscription. :D

I look forward to the fan magazine but I have to say this issue has a disappointing cover ...everything else is top notch..

Yea I thought the picture of that fan was kinda odd too !! Upon closer inspection of the cover it looks like the brand is an Airtech !! I’ve seen that brand before.Oh Well a Great issue this time as usual anyway !! :cool:

Good call, Jeff.

I have the same fan on my bedside table, but without Airtech on the badge. Good modern fan for sure, but collectible?  :wondering:

I feel weird still using the modern fan, and would love to put one of my restored fans there, but my alarm clock is right by the fan cage and I take sleep meds. :violin:

Just my opinion as an editor & art director, the cover was a misfire.

Russ...I like the idea of the Hill vane....I will bring it up with my machine shop friend.. we were planning on doing something... really all that I need is a rotor, The rest shouldn't be a problem..

Why do you need a rotor? The Hill vane would be a much more feasible reproduction than a La Boiteaux fan motor. I am really surprised that none of the machinists in the club have not attempted the Hill vane(hint :D). I would bet a well reproduced version would sell. The fan motor platform would need to be widened out a bit.

If you could get the Hill insignia engraved into a functional vane you would have a very marketable reproduction of what was.   :D

Russ... I didn't realize it was just a plate with a sall on it. I was thinking the whole thing, since I don't wanna spend the money for a very rare bipolar motor one that I'm not even sure even exist I thought will just make the whole thing it will be a challenge.. as far as the engraving it has become very simple now. we have a 3-D handheld scanner and can scan almost anything,We even did a Coleman deflector badge signed by Mr. Coleman # 00001... I have a picture of it somewhere I just don't know where it is right now

I like the cover. Kinda why I like fans. It spins and oscillates and is a fury.

First rule of advertising/marketing - - get your audiences attention, Recall the campaign for a luxury car where said car was never shown? "Mad Men" have done this shtick for decades. But I have already paid for my mag . . .

 we talked about making these, they look pretty Symplex to me... it would be nice to find a cast iron bass already made that we can purchase and then build off of that, it wouldn't be identical but I don't think it matters just as long as you can stick your fan on it and watch it wag back-and-forth...

If you can find a five footed flag pole stand, I might give it a try.

Cheers,
