Yup- I'm digging it out. I got another one- and a pretty clean one at that. I haven't even wiped the dust off yet. The last one went upstate to my buddy's place so I don't melt when I stay there. Couldn't pass this one up. Runs great on both speeds and should clean up really nice. Everywhere... they're everywhere!

Wow! Thats some nice work on that poweraire Kim. :up:
I have one just like it thats still too nice to repaint yet. If I dont sell it I'm going to probably use it as my bedroom fan this summer.
So many fans, so little windows....:violin:

I saw those pics- that thing came out great! I have fought with the godawful die cast on these things already and it's touchy to say the least. And you know how I love the powder coating, but it aint happenin' on one of these. I don't trust the thin castings in the oven, outside of the fact that you can't break it down enough to bead-blast without causing a nightmare. I'm lucky with this one- paint at most, but I'm gonna see how well it cleans up and try to leave it at that. My old one (the one that started this post) had a big dent in the bullet and the fins were all distorted. What a pain that was to get straight without breaking the thing! If this thing cleans up as nicely as that ivory QuietBlade I got from you, I won't even need to worry about paint...

Bought this at an estate sale up the street in 2009. It was my first old fan and it's what got  me into restoring old fans. This one was in pretty bad shape with lots of rust and corrosion thruout. It's a great little fan, smooth, quiet, and really moves the air.
