Hi all..

This fan popped up near me and am I right thinking that it's a bit too much considering what all needs to be done? 250? New blades, probably new cage? Is this a 1907?


Thanks and happy new year!

Tristan

That looks like a first variant 1906 pancake. Does it have the original ceramic switch? If so, you might be able to get for $200. Otherwise, pass. Pancakes are increasing in value and a nice 1906 pancake can go for around $500 these days. The switch is a hot commodity and is valuable at resale. I hate to think of fans on the value of parts, but pancake parts are valuable. It is always best to buy fans as good original complete fans. You will save money and hassle that way.

If it has the switch then its worth it. You would have to dish out about 250 for a new cage or just slap a bmy cage on it temporarily if you want to wait a bit. If it doesnt have the switch then its no steal since that would be impossible and expensive to replace.

There is another way to look at this fan and that is by the sum of the parts. If rear terminals/insulators are there ..$70   Motor tag $35..Rotor/stator $100 ..Blade $50..Oil reservoir $50...Struts $45...bearing set screw  $10...Oil return $20...Cast iron $50...Then if the terminal block is in the base...another $50....




I'd point out to the seller about all the missing parts and make an offer below asking. If you get it, you have a trove of parts to use on the next cake you find that has missing items....

If you can find a nice and complete 1906 for $500, I'd buy it and part it out. Besides the above prices, a cage should go for $150, the switch and choke $250-300......I'm more inclined to value the smooth base cakes at around $800....more for s/n's 314XXX and above. The 1908 models ran concurrently with the 1908 BMY's and were the last of the cakes..Latest serial number for them is 325389.......Just my opinion FWIW...

The rear terminals are there. For $250 or less, the fan can be a donor or part it out and make yourself some money towards your next one.....

I'm with Kim, I'd be hard pressed to pass on many pancakes that are mostly complete at that price. And the parts are much more available for an '06 fan than for an earlier one making them much easier to make whole if parts are needed.

Okay, finally got some better pictures. He's not budging on the price.. Switch is cracked towards the edge. Could sell for parts but I REALLY want a one of these fans. It's not the 03 that I want but it's a start I guess? Can't decide if I want it yet. By the time I purchase all the parts I could just buy one of the same year restored or close.

You have the switch. Here's a breakdown of everything you need:
knob, pointer/holder, cage, and badge. The tag you can either live with or get a replacement from Donald Coleman. How does the fan run? It would be smart to buy it if only as parts. You could get a needy 1903 and combine some of the parts.

Okay, I picked it up this afternoon. Michael, What was the link you sent? It didn't show up. I feel like I have seen this fan before somewhere. If anyone wants this incorrect cage let me know.

What Michael posted was probably the Pancake that was up for auction with holes in the blades a while back...
