Well, I can tell you that it looks like it would suck the paint off the sheetrock and that I'd love to have one in my kitchen, but that's about it.

This is up Rob Duffy's alley... that's a biggun'...

What you have is Vornado's largest production pedestal fan head mounted as a window/box fan.  Incredibly powerful.  5 something amp motor......Gotta love that blade pitch......Well Done, Larry!

undo the rear cap screw and the oil pot might be inside the rear cover (for the back) all vornadoes should have something to oil with!

I've had a few of those modem 60s but I've only seen them in pedestal form. That's a rare find
