Unless I became stupider over night, I am pretty sure that the "Type 1120 only 13 known to exist" phrase is a lie. First thing I want to know is how someone could come up with such random information. How long did it take him to think of that one. And last but not least, what the heck happen to that poor Emerson?!

Rob,  That's easy.  He just added the type numbers together....11+2+0=13:thumbup:thumbup

First off, I know next to nothing about this model. My question is, why does the 1120 in the gallery have a 4 wing blade and the one on C.L. have a 2 wing blade? This is just to help me learn...

At one time this Emerson fan in question chucked a wing. In order to balance the now three wing blade, the owner made the rash choice to perform an amputation of the opposite side wing. :up: By doing so...he then created a Emerson'nd-aire 1120. :up:

G.E. however, as you can see in the picture...struggled with trying to perfect a smooth running fan. Then one day someone got the brilliant idea to remove the blade on the opposite side. And balance was once again restored in the world of G.ood E.nough Electric. :up: Amen.

Wait, how many Emersons were in McLaughlin's survey? If I do the math, there are only 4 1120's in the survey.

0.2% of ~2050 is 4

I thought that may be the case, but I know very little about this model.

 

I'll bet that 3 winger is a real challange to balance! :hammer:

I'm betting that there are only 13 two wing 1120s known to exist.  Obviously, these have not all been reported to Jeter as of yet.:wondering:

Nicholas,

Ronny J. has added to McLaughlin's survey. He has about doubled the number in McLaughlin's original survey.

This was exactly my understanding too. There are only 13 two winged 1120's ever made. Rare indeed.

But the real beauty is that after the fan fell and destroyed one wing and the cage, it is still here to had by some one to provide it with some tlc.

They have it confused with the 1520. I Don't remember how many are in the survey, but 6 sounds about right.

I'd have to say Jeter's 1120 current count is close to correct based on my inventory of 2001. When I began reducing Emersons just prior to the wife's intent to manage a major yard sell I had 3 complete 1120s and my ol Pal Tom had one which I acquired for him. Now the time date on my first Emerson sell was Eureka National and I even acquired one additional 1120 from HFC after that time. Thus here are 5 fully recorded complete 1120s and I likely had most of the known ones in the early to mid 90s. BUT, GOTTA ADMIT I NEVER WAS ABLE TO ACQUIRE THE RARE 2 WINGER!

I found a couple of pics of the mighty 1120 which might help those of you that havn't had the pleasure to see this regal ol beauty. The sample on the mantel has a couple of extra wings which I added just for show, but the fan is correct and I've listed a couple of additional snaps. Next to the mantel is an 1120 with the 4 wings and in the next snap is a sister fan 1220 4 wing 16 inch trunnion 6 pole dandy to the right of the 1120.  The power of this fan easily moves the cast hub 6 wings with no stress. I'm quite confident if this fan were mounted on a Cessna 140 it would lift you up & away.

^^^ Jerry, I don't mean to take attention away from the 1120 but I love that Veritys on the mantle! It looks like it has a really nice original finish and the toned bronze on the brass is complete too. I would love to see some close up photos of this fan.

Hi David, thanks for the interest on the Orbit but I'd have to bow to the guys that know that fan better than I to get into what's right & what's wrong, but that fan came from Birmingham and the cage and wings were either extremely light brass plated or painted. I left the fan as received for quite a time, but it just flatout looked dingy to me. I have since rewinged the machine with brass and applied a new coat of metalic paint on the cage. To me its 100 times more attractive, plus I don't like steel cages & blades, thus I guess its not original any longer. If anyone ever wants an almost perfect match to the original paint it's actually on the shelf: Premium Rust-Oleum, Brillant Metal Finish # 7270 Gold Rush Metalic. I'll take a look around to see if I have some of the original snaps to share. Great entertaining fan but built no-where near as sound as an EMERSON.

Hi Jerry,
Thanks for sharing. I don't want to hijack this thread by talking about your Veritys. Would you start your own thread about this fan? It would be nice to see photographs too. There are too many questions I would like to ask you about it.
