I shared this on facebook when I actually finished it but never shared it here for some reason. Found this at a market a couple years back from a friend that deals in old toys. Had Darryl make new bearings for it and now she runs great now. It was a daily runner back in 2018. One day i’ll look into a switch but for now I do not mind using it as an infinite speed fan on a variac.

Very nice Austin. I'm thinking about sending mine to Paul Graves soon for him to fix the cage and do some work on it-does he build switches too?

Man! Where do you guys find nice fans like that? I guess because I live in South Texas. That's a great fan!
