The differences are the two have different motors, 25E1=R&M Motor, 25E2=Redmond, and the design was simplified for the 25E2 (cheapened in my opinion...)
Also the 25E2 is a later model than the 25E1

You can see the differences in the post I made about the 25E fans.

I used to have a green window fan that was belt drive. It used a Delco motor. The shaft and bushings for the fan blade were shot so I trashed the fan saving only the motor, fan blade and pulleys. Someone had used a belt on it that was too tight for too long :cry:. Really threw out the air and was reversible with two speeds. I had originally planed to fix it, but with the rusting case and having to get a new shaft made and finding bearings for it I decided the fan was not worth fixing.

Here are some more, I like window fans. 
 
Homart, unfortunately it fell off the window sill and broke the reverse switch(still have it's parts).  It was one of my fav daily users before that happened.


Kisco

GE. wobbles and gets hot, broken switch.


Only one of these I've ever seen, I guess it could be kinda rare but I also don't think anybody cares much because I never here about them either, but it works really well.

Here is my Homart.It's built like a tank.You have a nice collection David.That GE brings back memeries of when I was a kid.My grandparents had one of those.When they would start it up the motor would shake cause of the torque on the motor.That was a powerful fan.I tried to get one on E-Bay but lost out.

That Vornado window fan has mod 30W3-1 on it, another one I need to clean up later.  That rusty colored(?) Homart looks like my Lonergan, wonder if they're related.  Here's one more Homart I use.  But I liked the brown one better with multi-speed with intake and outtake mode, motor barely got warm too, too bad about the switch:cry:.  I may try to fix it sometime but I think I lost some parts to what was left.

The reason I ask is because the color scheme and motor cover of that Vornado are the kind that are on the Canadian made ones, which would make it a 30T1 or 40T1 (I can't tell blade size from your pic, 30=10", 40=12")

I think that one of ours is a rebrand of the other, but I'm not sure which way.
My (future) fan is circa 1954
It is seen here: http://www.fans.dangeroustacos.com/galleries/catalogs/Sears/1954/02.jpg

Zach, I think that Vornado is O.A. Sutton. My grey Vornado has the same exact motor cover except the switch is on the back of the motor, ironically the switch looks the same even though it is a different color. Did Canadian Vornado fans use the same exact style? I always thought they were slightly different.

I picked up this vornado window unit yesterday at a garage sale for $15. It appears to be all original and it works great (except for some vibrating after running a bit). I have anther early Vornado and love them, there was also a polished all-aluminum vornado there but sans the base so i left it, on second thought went back and someone had snagged it already :X

I did some research on in this forum but can't find anything specific to vornados for balancing other than doing it slowly by hand.. is that my only option?

$15!, awesome deal!  I need to get up and go to those sales again.  I think if somebody came up with a blade balancing machine and easy balance method, they could make a little$

I have the next generation Homart: it has 2 speed reversable and a timer. The Homart nameplate (mine is missing) is round in sheet metal, and the grill is slightly amended. My grandfather worked on a project to measure fans' efficiency found the Sears to be the best velocity. They work great!

That looks pretty cool!!!  I feel like I'm stocked up but I don't have any belt driven fans yet.  My dad has a giant belt driven Emerson for his workshop that was my mother's dad's fan, I think it's about 4 feet across.  I don't think he takes care of it though, he's not a fan doood.  I bet he oiled it once in 30 years:cry:.

It may have. In the Signal catalogs they show the 12" model on a small floor stand, the bigger models could have also been on rollabout stands.

That's a nice Signal boxer you have, I love the low RPM purr of those fans on low speed.
