What year(s) was THIS MODEL Paragon manufactured between the years of 1897-1905?  :wondering:





Tip...look at the fans features and use the AFCA search engine for past Paragon posts. :up:

Engineer Harold Wellman not only redesigned the Paragon motor casing for the 00 fan motor season,  he also ripped off Bobby Lundell's 99 fan motor HEAVY DUTY GUARD and HEAVY RING MOTOR LIFT HANDLE.  Wellman also went with Lundell's top guard support dropping the bottom 2 guard supports and securing the heavy duty guard to the base.



THE FAN MOTOR IN THE IMAGE ABOVE AND BELOW HAS STILL NOT SURFACED AND DATES 1900-01.
