 The switch looks like a nightmare. I am glad this one works perfect. It's a Bryant.I didn't thing they made fan switches.I have only seen them on lamps.Does anyone have a picture of this beast restored they could share.All I have is black and white magazene pics.I would like to get back to original as possiable..

PSSST..... I did spot a looks to be possably a Gaylord at there location they said would be going soon.

I've no pics (sorry).

But that is a very nice find! I've gotta say, imagine that thing as a scaled up Darth Vader oscillator ped for use in the house with a really nice slow low speed.

Thats a cool fan!

I found one kinda like it on craigslist. I am debating if I should buy it. its an emerson, and a fairly large fan. Maybe a bit too overwhelming for my room! :)

I would get that. $40 seems reasonable.

Michael that fan is awesome. Does it run quietly? I am guessing it does with those blades.:D

That fan would make a really nice gift for someone who's never done anything for you.  How soon can you deliver it to me?   :D

Congrats on your find Michael.  Neat fan.  I've never seen a large Westinghouse circulator quite like that.

Nice! I like that housing. Imagine my earlier idea of that with a three speed rotary switch on a taller (say adjustable between 5 and 8 feet high), have low speed run at a near silent 500 to 600 revs. That would be a true "Lord Vader" fan.

That would be the ultimate fan in a big room, lots of air moving quietly. All coming from a big fan that is desperately pretty, I like the smaller Darths for their sheer looks.

I know Geoff Dunaway has a 24 inch shorty.Quite Impressive.Geoff if you are watching can you please post a pic of it. I want to see the color on it,because I want to restore it and I want to see the orginal color.So then the first year they made these would 1939?That thing throws out an insane amount of air.It runs smooth as silk.

Thanks Michael for the pic and info.  I'm not sure if this is a Gaylord, either.  Could be but it's not like mine.  I'm sure not all Gaylords were the same!

It's not a Gaylord. You dudes keep working on it. :D I will mention one thing in a respective way. When you bring an Ebay auction to the forum before auction close, you bring more attention to it. There may be an AFCA member out there that is hoping to get a good deal on that fan just cause they dig it. The more exposure it gets...the smaller their chances at a good deal. Just a thought.:cool:
