I was just about ready to give up
on ever seeing this delivered.   :?

After a more than four month

wait,...  it arrived.  I am happy!  :D
















Notice the seamless paint between
the base and motor.

Surely painted after assembly,...
...not a single casting?   :wondering:

That is very nice! Sure looks like it's one piece. hard to believe it is, tough to do would think. Like the "wave bar" on the switch too. Interested in what you'll come up for blade assembly.

Gorgeous fan! The rear housing is especially nice. Glad you finally got it, 4 months is a LONG wait.

Congratulations. Very nice buy Jim.
The delivery delay is shocking but doesn't surprise me; postal services during the pandemic have been completely screwed up down here too.

They are a fairly early Isaria and not a common fan and yours looks in pretty good condition. I have never seen an example.

Looks like yours was possibly used as a static belt drive motor?

I presume you have seen the example on the Stuermer website?

Your's tag and possibly paint work has fared a little better?

He doesn't have a dating for the manufacture of his example but having a serial number just 129 younger than yours, they are likely of the same year? His pictures might be useful for making a repro blade and cage?
