The reason that fans oscillate is due to the widely held belief in the past that drafts cause disease. Quite the opposite is true, actually.
Oddly, I rarely use my fans in oscillating mode, even though 95% of them can do that. 
When I do, I tend to prefer a figure 8 or orbit type of oscillation. 
My personal favorite is the Lokelani. I count this as one of my very best designs. I've used it daily for several years and it sits right on my desk. Since I recorded this video, I've installed a much more sedate orbit motor.

I have a friend who is part Hawaiian. Her name is Hula lei. This is the only fan she ever showed any interest in. She said I should never sell this one. I probably won't.
Cheers,
Bill
