Rocky I think the earlier ones were 3, then 4 blade, then elephant ear 3 blade. My ceiling hung is 4'wing. Quiet as can be, but when I bought it the bearings were stuck. Tore them down & cleaned them, then repacked them with grease. The rear bearing was a "little rough", but hey new grease & low RPM, it will be fine. Bad idea!!! Sounds fine in the garage, go upstairs & it sounds like a chain saw!

Hey George. What was the brass blade fan they had at that auction? I emailed the auctioneer and he said he couldn't tell. Did you nab it too? I wasn't going that far not knowing for sure what it was.

The 4 wingers were short lived from 1938-1939 and seem to have been made concurrently with the thin leaf blades. By 1940 they were elephant ear style.

Nice fan, I have a Wagner in my shop that is the same model. I like the 4 blade ones, seem to be the quietest IMO.

I'm careful on running those & some of those will be traveling onward this November, the 30" mouse eared fans only pull 1.35 amps on high right at the tag rating. I've been running 2 of them when working in the garage, very nice breeze, they don't hurricane you like the leaf blade Emerson (5 amps) or the Westinghouse 20" (2.2 amps).    Andrew I knew you would have the scoop on the 4 blade , do you have any videos of one running? thanks

Stan, one of these meets, we just tear the darn thing down and replace that bearing. I've been hearing about it for about 8 years now!

Anyone want the Hunter version?  At 200, I don't see any profit and I have enough of the biguns.
