Here's my Robbins & Myers 1953 Window fan.  I love this fan and it gets quite a bit of use.

Ain't that the truth! in the spring and in the fall , sometimes I have to turn it off during the night, it gets cold! My neibhors look at me funny but the are mad when my light bill is 50.00 a month instead of twice that. My house will not take a attic fan so this was the closest that I could get to one

I think it might be an Air King.

Those are not the original blades. And no, I do not have pictures, but I have seen a similar, but larger version this fan, I think. It was an Air King and it looked like this one, only bigger. I doubt those are the original blades though.

 I thought so;those blades look like they came from an exhaust fan.Do you think that fan could be from the late 40's?

It is tough to say. How big is the fan? It may be even a 50's to 60's fan. Does it have any tags of some sort?

This is all it had on it.I was hoping someone had a picture of one or one similar.As far as the size I think it's a 15-16 inch.Its the smaller size.

It may be a rebranded fan, but you never know. It could very well be an original too! If I find more information on it, I will help you out.

  I have had that fan since1993 and it works good.Remember like most Eskimos you got to keep it oiled or it starts squealing.I use silicone spray and that seems to last a while.It is a nice fan.:cool:

OK, I never post on here, forgot I had the account. But I saw this thread, and thought I'd show mine off.


First one is my 1983 Lasko model # 3155 A. I got this at a flea market for $8, with the original box and receipt.

My second one is this 1978 Dayton (re-branded Lakewood) model 4C421. I got this from a friend of mine who also collects fans (no account on here, but he is Drew on the DT forums) I have wanted this one since I was a kid, because there was one in the plant of my dad's office, and I was obsessed with it.

My third one is the rarest, and most powerful in my collection. My 1958 Frigid model # WR 20-T. :cool:

I went to get a lasko hassock fan off craigslist, and when the seller heard I collected old fans, he told me he had this old beauty. It has some paint lost and minor rust, I plan to restore it this summer. :up:

Well, my Penncrest (Lakewood) T12-3 arrived.  It's pretty much identical to Rob's fan. 

Both motors run concurrently and are very quiet and smooth.  As Rob said, the fan is likely from 1965-69, but it could be as late as '70-72, or as early as '61. 

Doesn't have side panels, but was designed for window use, mostly in casement windows were a standard 20" fan would not fit and a single small fan would not produce enough velocity.

Hey Bob,

Great fan!

On that RM window fan, on the toggle switch plate, there should be a "series letter" listed.  Can you tell me what the series is on your fan?

Also, how did you date your fan as 1953?  Just wondering...

Thanks!

I only have 2 - not totally sure on the dates.... I'll try to get a better photo later and will change this one.

Freshy - twin - multi speed with thermostat



Philco - wood window fan made to look like a radio.

Nice little Freshy! 

I think that Philco is one of the first ever window fans.  In have been told they were first manufactured in the late 1930s.

Eventually I will get around to totally restoring both of them. The Philco is pretty neat. The back end is smaller so you can close the window on it and it also has a replaceable air filter in the back which is nice. Here's a side shot of it. Kim Frank has restored one before - incredible work as always from him. I think he said it's an Emerson motor inside.

Here are the box/receipt to the Lasko, and the back of the Frigid.

I'll post my entire collection later, I have about 35 vintage fans.





Blades were wet when I took this. :P

Here's some better shots of the Freshy I posted above.... It going to clean up beatifully - ultimatley I'm going to totally strip all of the paint and repaint it, the chrome grills actually are in excellent shape and once I clean those up and remove some paint over spray that on them they will look new. The motors and controls work perfect. I'll also be polishing the aliminum blades to a near mirror finish.

I really like that big Air King pictured by the original poster, especially seeing that it appears to be reversible.

 I would say it is a tad smaller than a Homart,bet just as heavy.I had been using it at my mother in laws house and could only find the front room windows big enough for it to fit into.
