Picked this the other day, I think its pre 1920...which would be sweet since I have not found anything that old in awhile. Also any help on parts would be welcome, Badge obviously and wings,struts and cage possibly..

I guess this post will have to take a back seat, that Wright fan is unbelievable.

That is a fairly standard Diehl fan. They made them from the late teens all the way up into the 1930's. Yours is probably a 20's model judging by the blade set and taller base. The late teens model was on a squat base and had some very deeply pitched blades. Looks like you are missing the badge, and the ball detent oscillator has come apart which is a somewhat common issue with this fan. They all used that cardboard type thing on the bottom. I have the early late teens version and two 16" models one ac and the other dc and both have that fiber material on the bottom.

I have a stationary version around the same year. I agree with Austin, the deep pitch makes wind. Mine runs great and has astoundingly good paint that cleaned up well. The cage is in the garage being painted and the blades have been through the rough rouge but not the fine. These are typically available for very reasonable prices but I have seen some sell for ridiculous prices when shined up well.

I was thinking it was around 1918 based on that it doesn't say "Division of Singer" like others I have had.
