Well done Larry, it looks very clean. I too like the line switch.

BTW, there is a very cool Australian version of this fan. I forget now exactly what it looked like, but it used the same ball motor as yours.

Nice Larry,

Can't wait to work on mine, less of a challenge than the old Emerson single bearing fans I have taken apart!

It's amazing just how much air this pushes and how quiet it is. Unfortunately, my wife is afraid the cat will stick a paw in it so for now it is going to the shop... It's a bit modern for my 1920's bungalow anyway, but I thought it was so cool, I had to have it! It'd look great in a mid-century modern style home.

Hang it on a window to keep it out of the cat's (& children s) way - - anybody got the window panels these may have come with?

Wow, that would be great but what are the chances of finding those panels? Probably zero! Thanks for the pictures. I've added them to my photo album on the fan. Let's see, first get the window panels, than the hassock fan.... Then have my wife throw me out of the house...

panels are hard to find that is for sure.... you can slip a piece of rubber fuel line on that back leg to make a "foot" for it. The newer models had a much squarer cage so you could reverse the fan in the panel. i have a complete unit with your style cage, and you cant reverse the fan in the panel because that back foot sticks out.... good luck with it!.
