Did a Fresh'nd-aire ever have a base that looked like this?If it didn't what would a base like this be for?I haven't seen it in person so I dont't know if it's cast iron or pot metal but it looks pretty big.

Logan, the fan head is a bit later than the base, I'm afraid.

Please re-post this in pre-1950 for Huber to gawk at. :up: It is most definitely not post-1950.

That's a dandy Logan. Notice your guard uses the earlier method to interlock the guard halves...not clips. That is all Fresh'nd-aire. The blade MIGHT be a replacement?

Gary Heidenfelt wanted me to post these pictures of his model 26 for you. :up:

So whatcha make of this Russ? The bases are a match but they look as if they are early enough to have the 3 wing aluminum Freshy prop like on your ornate base AromaBreeze. :wondering:

Get there early...tell them you mow grass for a living. They may sell it to you for $5. Good Luck!

I got the fan today.The guy said his dad used it in his shop for 70 years.








Motor looks like it was originally painted silver.






It looks like the base was originally white.


It looks like the blade was bought later from here.




The cage looks like it was cadmium plated.

They really are very nice fans. I have a 26" model that I have in the dining room right now. I love the sound that it makes and on the low speed you dont even hear it from more than 10 feet away.

You have a very special fan there and I know I'm a little green with envy.

Thanks for the pictures Logan and Congrats! Your pictures just educated me a little more on these machines. :up: Your pole motor mount appears original and more stable. I have not seen that mount yet....just the pot metal over steel stuff. That blade guard without clips must of been used into the 40s. Man these fans are hard to peg down.

I sanded on the white paint and it looks like the original color was tan.It might look weird but I'm going to blast this off and paint it the same color.

That tan might have been the primer too. What is the color thats over the tan?

Maybe it is a primer.It has white over it.I can tell the black was painted with a brush and over chips.

It kind of looks like a primer or a sealer. I dont know if they had that type of product back then but when I had my valued pedestal fans professionally painted heres what they looked like in the primer/sealer

That would look really great if you had the time to paint it black and the leaves green and then gold at the top near the post.

I think the white would make the rest of that beautiful design stand out a lot more than a darker color would.

if you are blasting with sand use REALLY REALLY good resperators, silica in regular sand is very dangerous to your lungs and can cause silicosis.

good work by the way, i still need to get beads for my sand-blaster.

much better than sand paper or stripper thats for sure!

A good and proper finish would be satin black with gray glazing.

Thanks Lewis and Charles.It is a pretty powerful fan.It's quiet too.Charles here is the sandblaster we have.We got it at a tractor supply store.We put an extra air filter on it to remove more water.I thought it was fun blasting the paint off except it was really hot outside.

My mom said it was a little over $100.00.We had a little one we got from Sears that you don't pressurize.It was ok for something small but it would clog up alot.
