These came in yesterday from eBay. They both arrived safely and work well - will polish up nice for sure. I had been on the lookout for a nice 12" box fan and these two came up at the same time at good prices. I couldn't make my mind up so I bought both!  :D

The first is a 12" Signal, and the other something I haven't seen before. It's a 12" Fresh Air Maker by the Schwitzer-Cummins Co. of Indiana. Anyone have a knob for the Signal?

You did good. I don't see the steel construction 12" models much anymore. Just the cheap plastic ones.  :D

That Signal Box Fan of yours would of had window panels that went with it so that it could mount into a window and be used as an electrically reversable window fan.
See picture below for an example of what your fan would of looked like originally:

I am very impressed with the quality and performance of the Signal. The Fresh Air Maker is built well but just doesn't have the performance of the Signal.

Russ - thanks for the knob tip. I'll keep it mind. I plan to check a surplus store which has appliance and electronics parts - big boxes of knobs.

Levi - I'm not sure that mine had panels. It doesn't have a thermostat or reverse switch. It also has steel grilles, not the plastic louver style. I think it's just a box fan. :P

They are nice fans! I saw that Signal on eBay and was actually watching it. I'm glad you got them.
