Thanks Pat. I have a couple of questions....fan serial number 232991. Does it have the smooth base or half ribbed base with a set screw and a thumb bolt?
   And on all three of the fans, are the motor housings smooth, or more stylish, like the earlier model fans of 1903-1905? I appreciate your information and it has been added to the survey.

Thanks Jim and Alec. Yes, I am constantly looking for more input. This is a continuing project and with everyone's help, I'm starting to see things such as what the Spec Numbers mean. Eventually I will be putting together a GE 1894-1908 Fan Models book to help everyone with the identification of these fans....Keep the info coming...Thanks

It's pancake day.   I finally rearranged my fans to have most of my pancakes shelved together.   Not shown is a 1904 trunnion I use to blow air over my wood stove I heat with and my only 16" pancake, a 1901 stick mount, on another shelf.  I count 17 pancakes, all AC current, which seems to be enough to complete the ones I want until that 1895 12" cake shows up.   I remember the day I brought my first pancake home in 2001, a very nice original 1902 trunnion I got at Fanfair in 2001 for $425.  That was my 30th fan.  How values have shot up on GE pancakes !   Since 2001 when I started collecting fans I have had 375 fans with my collection now standing at around 185.  This does not include the c.250 fans I bought from Bill Voigt's storage units when he passes of which the majority have been sold but still quite a few are left and will be sold.





Left to right top shelf:  1899 with Ted Kaczor 1898 cage (my one "custom but I have the original cage too), early 1899, 1899, 1900, 1901, 1902, 1898 10", R&M feathervane.

Left to right bottom shelf:  1898, 1899, 1900, 1900 (built in 1904 according to serial number but fan is "pure 1900" 'in all other respects), 1902, 1903 full rib, (1904 is in another location),1905, c.1904 AEG (German)









The two pancakes not in the photos above, 1904 trunnion (in use) and 1901 16" two speed stick mount, the only 16" pancake that I like.

Hey Steve, No one likes a show off . Just kidding haha. I'm drooling all over my keyboard.
  Fantastic collection you have there. When are you going to let some of those go to a new home?

I may be holding on to all of my pancakes.  I've sold maybe 4-5 since I started to collect but have gradually pared much of my collection down to those fans that mean the most to me.   After I pare down some other fans I may decide that I don't "need" this many pancakes.  Notice that I have no 1906-1908 models nor any stick mount with switch in base which I don't like.  And no DC "pancakes", wall mount pancakes, blinged or restored pancakes or more than one 16" pancake.   I don't want to compete with Kim's collection which has really come along nicely to where HE might sell you one???

Eventually I'll start inventory with my Pancakes collection and provide Kim with information but that would cause significant strain on my joints and muscles so I need motivation... Most collectors including myself increasingly holding on to Pancakes. I'm missing 14" models, 1896, 1897, Canadians and DC's, but have most other ones including 16" Fishtail, Bracket and PingPong base, also 16' Fans of an importance to me (5). The most important I have a couple oldest "Pancakes" but will keep secret for a while until refurbish them. Kim you'll be the first to receive pictures and information from the back plates.

Kim,So the fan you had asked about has all the proper features an '06 cake should have. It has the smooth, rounded base, and the older style motor castings. It has the slotted shoulder bolts and steel struts. The small inspection tag on the speed coil indicates the the manufacture date for the fan is mid February 1906. 


As for the other two, both have the older style motor housings. The 16 inch has steel  slotted shoulder bolts.

Thanks Pat. Your descriptions tell me the fans are first variant 1906. Sometime in 1906, motor housing changed to completely smooth and the models continued that way until production ceased at the end of 1908.

It's been several months since the last posts. I see where many have gotten pancake additions to their collections. If  you are one of those lucky persons, send me the tag info on your fans and I'll add it to the survey. Thanks....

Jim, is that the fan I got from you? I wonder if 120 volts was giving me a problem?
