Here is a very nice condition Emerson I picked up at the auction tonight. The thermostat light is burned out and I'll have to get one at the hardware store tomorrow. Everything else works nicely and for a big fan this one is pretty smooth and quiet. I bet it was probably near the top of the line model for window fans when it was being produced.
I'll get it cleaned up and take some pictures of it in a day or two

Nice find. Mine does not have a light on it. The color changes as each different fan speed is selected.

Hi Charles,

I have a couple of these in my greenhouse, a straight two speed, and thermo 2 speed like yours. they can really put out the air.

I also have a thermo box fan in aqua blue with the same motor which came in the original box I use in the living room.
I  like my fifties  emersons as well as the early ones.

I cleaned and waxed it today. Rain X  makes a wax now so I used that after a little Meguires ScratchX polish. I bought a pair of bulbs at the auto parts store but unfortunately they popped as soon as I turned the power on :pissedI guess I will have to try stronger bulbs next time or just forget about it and let the next guy buy the bulb. I will more than likely be taking this one to Aiken as I do not have a  window large enough for it.

It did clean up very well. Emerson added a C clip for added protection in case the set screw came loose on the blade. Nice touch :up:

Here is one a got a few years ago, not really a box fan or a window fan, looks like the same blades and the rear badge is the same. This is the front view.

i used the exact fan all last summer then sold it. my light was burned out too. i could not find a low watt original bulb so i disconnected the original socket and put in a night-light one (how dumb is it to have a hot light bulb in the same compartment with the thermo?) anyway it worked great. it has a very different "Sound".  nice find!

This one has a much more sturdy grill. Check out the extra wires on the sides of this one

Probably an NE-2 bayonet or screw base Neon Bulb more than likely.

Hey Charles I'd be interested in one of those fans if you're getting rid of one of them.

I know the fan collector magazine had a pretty extensive write up on these a few years ago, but I cant remember all the details
