This is an interseting piece... Emerson wut is it? Home made? 2 speed and runs well!. I like McGuyvered pieces! I think there should be a cover on the back of course but it looks kinda cool that way... Mike Mirin stopped by and we checked it out... microdate is 14 so it is circa 1934...

Notice the yoke is hyper extended to fit the fan motor casting.  :D

George, is the transformer behind the motor being used?  If so, do you have a strobe to clock blade speed?  The motor is rated for a top end of 1600 RPM.  Curious what motor speed is with the use of the transformer? 


BTW...I have seen other early wall ventilators with transformers bolted to the back.

Low speed is quite a bit slower than high... i will try an strobe it tomorrow... THE MOTOR TAG SAYS SINGLE SPEED... SO THE TRANSFORMER IS IN THE CIRCUIT...

Clearly an exhaust fan mounted in some later non Emerson frame.  I looked at the 1928 catalog and saw some similar fans but with bullwinkle blades.

That one is probably 1930s.  Do your homework on our own site.

Thanks George,  gotcha, it's rigged for 2 speeds. I am VERY curious how many RPM that transformer reduces peak fan motor speed??  Happy Strobing.  :clap: :D

Yea George. You can't research your fan on this fan related site. Must use your own antique fan website. Lol.

This is cool. You are right that McGuyered projects can be very creative.

Hi Russ!

I got to the rpm's on this franky fan with the transformer on the back that is used to make a 2 speeder out of this 1600 rpm motor... 
I ran my strobe on this blade and found:  High speed...    1700 rpm
                                                                 Low speed...     1500 rpm

I have not checked the amp or wattage draw on this thing... But I will get it later...
