Hello All!

Recently, I came across a really neat set of blades and cage. They have always been together and I was told they came from a Peerless or Colonial fan. They look similar to some of the blades and cages on the fans made around the time of the Kick Start but definitely don’t go to that. I tested them with a magnet and the seem to be nickel plated steel if that helps. I though that seemed a bit odd, but they are really heavy duty. Are they really Colonial/Peerless? If so, does anyone know what they came off of? Thanks!

Type E1, same cage as the kick start AC model used.  1903


EE1-5 also not a match.

If the price is right on the cage you should get it. That open ring screams early. I do not know about the blade.

Oh, I already own the set! Thanks for the responses so far! Hopefully someone will be able to positively ID the fan it came off of.

10 wires and no indentation at the bottom of the guard helps it scream early even louder.  :D

   Those are peerless parts & the base would have been 3-tabbed rather than 5 tabbed as the later ones. Steve has pictured a 12" model of the same year w/o the fancy ribbed base. I have the same blade ,Cage and 3-tabbed base (Alan was also  selling one of those) and I've been waiting about 25 years  :cry:  for a motor (DC) to show up. I'm guessing that fan would have dated '06-'08 , the 5-tab base with curved style blades  being  patented in '09.  I bet Russ Huber can clarify my guesswork.  :up:

You and me both Geoff. I have the base. I also have an 03-04 GE DC Base. Both from Alan years and years ago. I have yet to see a motor for either...

Geoff, do you have a picture of what it would have looked like? I guess it’s pretty unlikely I’ll ever find a stump huh?

Thanks Russ. :shock: That’s...kinda crazy to think I own a part of it. I was also sent this: seems to show the same two rivet blade.

Don't get to giddy, Sean. :D  Your blade hub spider appears to be stamped, not cast?  No. 2,  Peerless/Colonial may have been using that guard of yours during the years Geoff brought to attention.

I like how you can put your entire hand through the cage

Yeah, fair enough. It’s Unfortunate it’s so hard to date Peerless/Colonial stuff, I would have liked to know what it came off of.

(Also, Yes Steve, can confirm you can fit a hand through the center ring. I’ve tried. :D)
