Well Craig, a form "V" is 1919 to 1920, I figure "V2" as 1920. A photo or 2 of the fan would help a bit more.

I've just run across one of these. This is a 32VDC fan. It has a star style top oscillator knob/nut on top. The bottom nut connecting the scillator is missing, but I'm guessing was a star style. 2 Star DC??  The fan is all apart right now, so I have no photos available. Power cord and head wire is shot, as is the original finish. I would not call the stump and motor casing 'patina' at all. If I can get her running, I plan to leave the finish alone for now. 
How common are these ??

I don't think they are real common. You will need a variac and a bridge rectifier to run it. I have a similar one. Mine is a 16" 110v dc 60561 3 star form R2. You don't see a lot of the DC fans out there. I have never seen another 3 star like mine. They are cool fans. Mine runs great.

Thanks for the info. I have a power strip with the rectifier in it and a variac, so I have the correct power. I'm  just intrigued by it. Plus, I'm a sucker for DC fans in general. Blades have a very steep pitch to them.

Yes I like the DC fan's also. Does yours have the cylinder speed coil? Mine looks like it was covered with drywall compound or plaster but still works :D

I have posted mine here in the past and could not find any info on it. No one had one like it. The closest one was a 60562 which is a 220 volt fan. It was wired differently than mine.

Ron, your fan is from 1919.   A 1920 Form V (V5 I think) would have the brass bell oscillator.

I don't quite understand your photo above Chris.   Here's my own 1947 Wards "powerful cleaning never looses suction" vacuum cleaner with built-in fan.  Monty on the right has been to several Fanfairs and loves to travel as well as enjoying some nice suction.

I was hoping I would find a photo or two in my files of a DC loop handle fan but I don't see any.


Please, no comments here about my suction machine video; let's not get any more off topic than I have here.  Thanks.

What I find interesting is that GE fans mostly kept their Cat. Nos. from right after the pancakes until around 1939.   The most common GE 12" oscillating fan and voltage and frequency was the Cat. No. 75423.   Although not stated on some earlier models, you will find that the GE sidewinder of 1910 carried Cat. No. 75423 for the 12" and standard voltage and frequency.    Same with a 1939 12" oscillator, 75423.   The 1939 oscillator was very different from the sidewinder but both were 12" oscillators and those models as well as the stationary models kept the same Cat. No.  If there were some more unusual models that did change Cat. No. it could have been due to significant changes of some kind.

GE c.1910 sidewinder.   Cat. No. 75423


GE 12" AOU oscillator from 1934-45, Cat. No. 75423 also.  1939 was the last year I believe for Cat. No.75423 and was basically the same as this fan with a somewhat different guard.



1914 GE catalog page showing 12 and 16" oscillating fans and the different Catalog Numbers.

Those are nice but I would love to see another 3 star like mine. I got lucky and got it off ebay for $30.00

On your 12" dc 3 star could you take pictures of how it is wired going to the brushes? The 60562 wires have special holes in the front of the motor housing for them. Mine just come out of the large vent hole with no special holes.

Where do the wires come out of the motor and go to the brushes. Or do they hook up on the inside?

On the one I'm messing with, the brushes are wired internally.

I have not seen another like it? I have examined it real well and I am positive that's how it was made, Nothing was changed when I got it.

I'm sure the internal is factory. This clip perfectly fits a groove on the inner part of the brush holder.

The tag on this one is located on the base, like the picture Chris supplied on post 19, I'll admit that I thought this was just a regular star oscillator. It had so much crud attached, I couldn't even see the brush holders. The only thing that told me this was unusual to my eyes - the headwire had four wires. A neighbor just wanted me to clean it up and make it look pretty for as close to no money as possible. Didn't care if it ran and wanted it as an art piece. I'm in the process of trading her a GE AOU that is in very nice cosmetic condition but I haven't got up and running yet. An honest win win for both of us. And I told her exactly what she has. She was very happy to help me out. I love the neighborly vibe of my new hometown

   I don’t know if this is any help, Don. Type DO 12” Form R-1. The photo doesn’t pixellate, but is not properly illuminated to read the label clearly. I’m getting R-1 okay, serial number 10419x7… when I squint.
