Well, I had seen this listing for awhile and talked myself into it.  It's one of the more aesthetically pleasing "Big Fans" to me.  Apparently it came from an old steel mill, then moved to a school, but then taken out because for some reason it was deemed "unsafe" for children, despite being high above wandering hands.  It's got a long way to go, but I already love it. I will now begin my desperate search for a countertop base.

Just keep it on the ceiling.  That's where it was meant for:

Was there a countertop base ever made for this fan?  Could possibly live with a pedestal.  Either way, in dire need to get this guy grounded!

I have a spare hunter ped base holding up a freshy fan. I now have a freshy base for the freshy fan so have a spare hunter base. Not shipping it for sure, it's huge, but if you're traveling through NWI or Chicago in the future let me know. I can drop off at Mike Mirin's as well...

They came in full chrome plate as well.  There was I believe 4 of these in one building.  Michigan was a BIG......customer for Hunter circulators.  I think I saw 9 of them hanging from the ceiling in another unused building. :D

A pedestal base has been located!  Sincere thanks to Michael Rathberger.  This might be a stretch, but is there anyone coming through the Northwest Indiana area on the way to Doc's for the Fall Workshop?  So excited to see this come together!

Thanks,


Trevor
