I've never seen one of this model in a 20 inch  turnabout. It's a Monster! :shock:

Hi Mike. You lost me at turnabout. Does the whole thing turn in the housing to blow in and out?

Manually reversable. You loosen the knob on the top, spin the head in the other direction and tighten the knob.

Looks to be pretty well preserved under that shell of filth. Have you attempted to clean it up yet? I remember one of those in a pizza shop here in my weird little town when I was a kid.

It was above the door when you walked in and would make the entire street smell like pizza when it was facing out...

There's still a pizza shop there, but no fan. (Just as well- mediocre pizza...)
