Attached are several photos of a pedestal mounted Roto Beam. The big question is whether this was ever actually a model produced by Roto Beam or is it some kind of adaptation by someone.  It looks like a lamp stand and it lacks stability. It looks to be a 10" model with a Signal motor.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Although they were made in a pedestal version, the one in question was a desk fan that has been mounted on a lamp base.

Lamp based Franken-fan. Pass unless its cheap.

Thanks, my suspicions are confirmed. Not priced well enough at all considering it's dubious origins. Seller was asking $175 but later proposed $135, still not low enough to essentially buy a parts fan.
