Electrical Review 1909: FORT WAYNE ELECTRIC WORKS. The fans offered by the Fort Wayne Electric Works, Fort Wayne, Ind., show no decided changes from the previous season, but minor details have been given careful attention, to the end that these motors give a most reliable service, are pleasing in appearance and require a minimum of attention. The line comprises direct and alternating-current fans in the following types: Right and ten inch, mounted on pedestal; eight-inch revolving, cord suspension; eight-inch and ten-inch universal bracket, adjustable suspension; eight and ten-inch, dragon bracket, spring suspension; eight-inch, telephone booth, spring suspension, Direct-current motors are wound for 115 volts, but will operate satisfactorily on circuits ranging approximately ten percent above and below rated voltage. Alternating-current motors are wound for 110 volts, but will operate at any voltage between 110 and 115 volts. Dish type fan motors are mounted on a hollow, cast-iron pedestal, with a base about six inches in diameter. These mo tors weigh from four pounds in the eight  inch to five and one-half pounds in the ten-inch motor. They are small in size and easily portable. Each motor is  equipped with a four-blade brass fan and guard. In the revolving type motor the whole motor is hung from an ordinary incandescent lamp socket and turns on ball bearings. The suspension cord is of braided linen sash cord and takes up the extra weight, no strain coming on the conductors or terminals. The universal bracket fan motors are designed for mounting upon the wall by means of a special wall bracket. A circular piece of brass tubing shaped like a goose-neck is fastened rigidly to the motor proper. The goose-neck works freely in a hole in the bracket lug, allowing the fan to be adjusted both vertically and horizontally to any position. In the dragon bracket fan motor outfit the motor, with the fan and guard, is hung on three coil springs from a dragon shaped wall bracket. The shaft is inclined downward and the motor can be turned so as to send air in the different directions horizontally. The telephone booth motor is a specialty which has been given especial attention. This motor runs at 1,200 revolutions per minute, and gives a gentle breeze, practically. without noise. It is suspended from three spiral springs which absorb all vibration.
