I am bringing a trunk full of good, intermediate grade fans and projects.  We will arrive late on Thursday night and leave Saturday night.  Hopefully AFCA has the registration and table reservation I sent in several weeks ago.
 
Project Fans – not running
12" Dayton tab foot toilet bowl oscillator
12" Dayton tab foot stationary – really nice guard and blade
12" WE Bipolar – no switch, guard, struts
16" GE 2-star 6-wing B/B – complete, straight/unmolested
12" 1905 GE Pancake – broken switch, broken cage
Westinghouse All-Brass radial axis original conversion fan - very unusual.  Original Westy green wiring needs replacement and should run.
 
Running fans
12" GE Kidney 6-wing - cracked gearbox, otherwise very nice condition
Emerson 16666 – has cast hub blade from a 24666
Emerson 27666 – runs good, ball detent needs a new bottom plate
Emerson 14644 – electrical short?
12" Verity Orbital
12" 1903 GE Pancake full rib base
12” Jandus wire-mount 
12" Hawthorn Vane – repro vane, no vane stops
8” Menominee stag horn oscillator

I believe that someone posted on the forum a while back an old electrical ad showing an illustration of an evaporative cooling fan made by a small Kansas City shop.  (Maybe someone can find it again)  It was a rough illustration, but looked similar to this, but with a water trough/moat that surrounded the circular air diffuser.  The air would blow down across the diffuser and over the water trough.  

I don't see any indication this fan ever had a water trough around it, but perhaps it could have. My hypothesis is that this was by the same manufacturer, perhaps a different model or the fan in the illustration..

I found this at Ole Bill's Antique Museum North of Kansas City about 25 year's ago (also got a Westy Gyro, 6-wing Tank, and a 12" Lollipop on the same pick).  His museum collection was extensive and astounding.

The original Westinghouse All-Brass has a number of very clever, and very factory-looking modifications to set it up for radial rotation, including modifications to the bearings/lubrication fittings.  It retains its original green rayon wire as seen on original Westinghouse fans of the era.  It looks completely original and untouched.  Oddly, the guard is a steel "Whirlwind" model, rather than a typical brass "Westinghouse" guard as would go with the fan body--perhaps for additional strength, or a later swap?
