Yup! Early Westinghouse spin start fan! Copper flash! Cage is straight and the blade is in perfect balance!! I will let the pictures do the talking Standing at nearly 2" tall I think this beauty was well worth it for $5!!

I think how it works is when you sharpen the pencil the shavings are then ignited and this starts high speed spin after you flip start it... I am just guessing at this point...

I figured the pencil 'lead', being a carbon, completes the circuit, sharpening and giving a micro-breeze simultaneously. Good find, Geo:shock:
