I know these Galvins used emmy parts... I typed this model # into our search engine and found nothing on this one... They used a single bearing shaft and adapted it down to use a slide on brass blade... That switch is not Original of course... Since it is very emerson-ish I could not turn it down... Any one have one?
Ps... I just found out that switch is proper!

H-G manufacturing started in St. Louis in 1920 manufacturing washing machine motors and utility purpose. In 1922 the H-G name was changed to Galvin Electric Co.  All I see is motor and radio part manufacture from Galvin until I see the first mention of fan motor manufacture from Galvin in 24.

 THE H-G MANUFACTURING COMPANY, 1215 Pine Street, St. Louis, Mo., recently organized, will manufacture a line of electrical specialties, including fractional-horsepower motors for operating motor-driven washing machines, etc. Work will be started immediately on the production of small motors. The officers are: J. F. Galvin, president, and A. M. Harrelson, vice-president and treasurer. Mr. Galvin was formerly manager of the St Louis branch of the Robbins & Myers Company, and Mr. Harrelson was chief engineer of the Emerson Electric Manufacturing Company.

Galvin, and in 21 a engineer dude named Newman were both previously thick with Robbins and Myers. A. W. Harrelson was previously an Emerson man.

So two from R&M, and one from Emerson. Well chomp on this.....before the first year was out of 22 that H-G Mfg. became Galvin, Harrelson (the Emerson man) took off to Dayton Fan & Motor Co.

George, Check your castings on the inside of the Galvin for cast in 4 digit numbers. That is how Emerson inventoried their cast parts. No 4 digit cast in numbers on the Galvin castings....no parts from Emerson. I see Galvin as an Emerson wanna be.

Galvin had a short fan motor run. Roughly 24-31. Knapp-Monarch absorbed Galvin Electric in 32.

After Galvin moved into a bigger factory in 22, they were located over 4 miles from the Emerson factory.

That blade looks like a Hunter blade judging from the hub, or at least it looks just like the hub on my Hunter loop handle. Maybe I am wrong though, which happens a lot. :tease

Here is its twin, the AFO 10. Notice the motor & base are now Galvin instead of Emerson, but the badge sure went to Emerson Jr design.

I think those Galvins are very good fans.  I had one like yours George but didn't have to pay a hunnert thousand for it.  Mine also had the same switch and I have seen a few others with that same switch so count on it as being original to the fan.

Harrelson was VP at H-G Mfg. Co. of St. Louis when it opened its doors in 20. H-G Mfg. Co. changed ONLY its name to Galvin Electric Mfg. Co. in early 22. By Dec. of 22 Harrelson with his Emerson background and influence flew the Galvin coop to be Chief Electrical engineer at Dayton Fan & Motor Company.

The CEO J. Galvin and engineer Newman new to H-G Mfg. in 21 both came from R&M. In 22 as stated above the Galvin factory was but 4 miles from the Emerson factory. I see a mix of Emerson and R&M engineering in the Galvin fan motors. H ell, the Emerson engineer Harrelson was 2 years gone before Galvin put what appears to be their first fan motor on the market in 24.

Here is another Galvin AF-10. I just got it today. The base is identical to the early Emerson Jr I have other than holes drilled in other spots. The Galvin base has one ear cracked loose. I need to possibly find someone to weld it back on.

Did Emerson have their own foundry to produce their castings or did they outsource them?

The Galvin base doesn't have casting numbers, but when compared to my Jr base, it's the same size and holes for the rubber feet are identical.

That is definitely the original switch and you will find that there are 2 variations of this fan. One having no handle on the top will have that goofy headwire switch and one model which I have 2 of that does have a handle but has a single speed together switch in the base. They do look the same as emmys and are made in St Louis  but there are still some slight differences, the motor housing has slotted holes rather than round holes and I know the rotor is slightly different. Really like these fans though, like an Emmy Jr but with brass blades.
