Hello Fan Forum!
I found this really neat Sears & Roebuck fan a few weeks ago and just now got around to posting it. 
I really like the overall design and the more I look at it the more I like it. Its really sleek and has a space/futuristic appearance to it.

Looks like something from the 80's? MAYBE the 90's? Made in Japan. So that's pretty neat. It reminds me a lot of the Mitsubishi fans that Japan was putting out around the same time. Only downside is it doesn't move very much air. Speed 3 is like a Speed 1 on most fans. I posted some photos for your consideration.

Wow, that is clean. I have a green version of that and its a great fan. I'm told they were made for Lasko for Sears by Sanyo. I love that style cage.

Thats probably from the early 1970's as it doesnt mention anything about Galaxy which was the brand these are usually found under. It should move a decent amount of air. Did you oil it and grease it?

I have pulled it apart and oiled it but it just blows so slowly. Speed 1 is just like nothing is going on. Its really clean on the inside. So I don't know why its so slow. 

EDIT : I did also notice when I first pulled it apart that the contacts for the speed switch were all black. So those got cleaned up. I thought maybe it was a bad connection there but that didn't fix the problem. I would love to run it. But for now its just on the shelf being displayed.
