Last night I finished the Lasko floor fan that is a wedding gift for my 29 year old niece. She requested the aqua color. She is super excited that this matches her kitchen. I enjoy taking a mid-century junky fan and returning it to its glory. Steel housing, aluminum blades, two speeds. The motor is super strong. :)

Nice job! Now to finish it off talk to Donald Coleman. He makes great repop badges.

I did not leave it off, it was a sticker that was scraped off. As Don suggested, I have emailed a member about a replica and I have had no response.

Sorry, I didn't know, that's why I asked. 
My grandparents had several of these fans around their house when I was growing up and I remember them well, the ones they had were brown and had push-button switches on the back and were 2 speed fans I believe if I remember right.

They were nice and quiet running fans that moved lots of air.
