One of the rarest of the R&M fans. This one has been cleaned and polished.

That is the smallest fan I have ever seen with a riveted blade. I want one!

I originally thought that these (or just the one that I previously knew of) were frankenfans because the 8" version of this fan is also the 2800. Does than mean that a 2110, 2410, 3854 or other R&M can come in any size within the same model number???

Randy Rohr also has a 6" 2800.

Nice Ron. Those are pretty cool little fans.

I think that is one of the few 6" B/B fans available. I have a foreign one that several people have. I also have a nickel plated 6" Pittsburgh, I don't know how many of these are out there, I haven't seen any show up on Ebay. It's on the project list for this year, I hope to get it done over the winter. I think Pittsburgh also had a little 4" fan, I remember seeing on several years ago.

PS

Remember the old fight over one of these on Ebay? I still laugh about that...

Never seen one quite that small in both Brass on Brass.

 My personal favorite is this model 1801. Took me a few years to come across a complete one and this is nearly 100% original. New power cord and polish only. No base plate though. One of the few I own that I simply would not part with. Sucker is HEAVY too, for the size.

Nice job, Ron. It looks great.

One of my favorites. The first one I saw was at Monty Young's in South Florida in 1990. It took me 12 years before I found one I could add to my collection. It's not going anywhere.

Since then Ron has been able to turn up several but they are indeed, rare.

If you think the fan looks good in the picture, Ron had it at Geoffs workshop and showed it around. Seeing it in person, it is really awesome!It is amazing what Qtips can do. Beautiful job cleaning it up.

In storage, I have that same little brass R&M cage, identical to that on Ron's sweet little fan. Maybe one day I'll get the rest of the fan!

Nice fan and nice job on it. I keep kicking myself when I had a chance to buy one of these for 60 bucks when I first moved to New Jersey.:violin:
