I was able to complete this extremely unusual arrangement for hanging fan on the wall, the 1899 GE PANCAKE BRACKET FAN. Thanks to my dearest friend Kim Frank who educated me, providing information and documentation of this contraption which was supplied by GE as an accessory. Kim also made this beautiful wooden display board.The big finial/nut is my reproduction and may not exactly be as the original was, but we didn't have better drawing/picture to see details...I think it looks desirable (wife like's it).

Excellent. Love those wall mounts. I will say again if anyone ever decides to replicate the wall mount elbow I would gladly buy several and I am sure many others would too.

Ted, now you need to be on the
look-out for the bowls, beaters and
orange reamer attachments...  :thumbup

I have some pancakes and this 1947 (I think) Sunbeam.   An AFCA friend brought me some lemons and oranges when he came by to buy some fans.  I needed a quicker and easier way to juice the lemons 5 days ago so got out my juicer attachment that I had not used in probably 20-30 years.  It made quick work of the juicing and much easier than using the old Sunkist hand reamer.  I had been thinking of selling the juicer attachment but not now.

He gave me wallnuts also and I am trying to figure out how to mount than on the wall so they sort of look like Ted's wall pancake.   I shelled the nuts yesterday but they didn't resemble a fan.

Ted, great fan!
Your mount looks like it has one acorn nut holding it to the wall. Is this an 1/8 IPS thread designed to screw to a decommissioned gas pipe that used to feed a wall sconce light?
The version in the drawings look like they mounted with three screws.

Tell us more about how you came to cast the wall mount for this fan. Or did you find it complete?  If you carved, modeled or somehow cast this out of your imagination I would like to meet you to shake your hand. Well done!

You are the master of Fab Ted. But you already knew that!
