here is a pretty nice belt driver. It has a Century reversible motor. It needs a trip to the powder coater but otherwise,  it runs good.

I'm afraid they call it a REX because it "WRECKS" the upholstery in your car when transported like that!

Sorry I couldn't resist. That's a nice fan, though. It's also got a really cool, old Century motor. Hope that motor can be restored and kept!

Eh... nobody sits back there,  its my work car. I have the fan disassembled and ready for powder coating. The motor is excellent with good bearings. It pulled about 5.9 amps on the meter, the tag is rated at 6 amps  :up:

Those parts cleaned up nicely!  Glad the motor is healthy as well.

The bearing nearest the blade was pretty cooked  :shock:I'm probably going to have to get the bearing surfaces cleaned up on a lathe too

Hey Charles, does your fan use a push-button switch assembly to turn the fan on and off with and to reverse the fan? I'm just curious because I had recently acquired a mid 1950s (1956 according to the date stamped on the original switch assembly) Sears Homart Cooler Window Fan that has a push-button switch assembly that allows for the fan to be electrically reversable and it also has a timer with it, I'm just curious as to how many companies during this time period made fans like this with push button switches that were electrically reversable.

This one had an inline switch in the cord. The reverse has a toggle switch
