This little 8" Diehl badged Zabriskie patent fan motor dates 1915-16. Why only 15-16?  Because Diehl marketed their fan motor line EXCLUSIVELY through WESTERN ELECTRIC in 1917.  NO....Diehl badged or tagged fan motors for the 17 fan motor season. THE 8" DIEHL ZABRISKI PATENT FAN MOTOR WAS TAKEN OFF THE MARKET AND REPLACED WITH A 9" MODEL IN .......1918.  


This Diehl 8" was on the market ...........1915-1917.

The 12" and 16" models hit the market in ....1916.  VERY POSSIBLE they were still on the market in ....1917. I can't validate this however at this time.

There are images of the rear oscillator in 17 electrical trade.  The wall bracket pivot feature patent on the rear oscillators was FILED in 17.

Geoff,


When time permits for you, please post a mixed grouping front, back, side,(stationary/oscillating/6wing/4wing) of the 1913-15 pressed steel Diehl models on a separate post. Would be greatly appreciated.

I just picked up a Western Electric version of these. Can anyone tell me a manufacturing date and rarity of my fan? I love it, it's my first and only front oscillator .

They were on the market it appears 15-17.  The Western Electric badged/tagged models are more common than the Diehl badged models.  WE had the exclusive agency for Diehl fan motors in 17. Many are missing there base bottom cover rubber boot.

Awesome,  thanks for the info, Russ. I need to figure something out for grip on the base as mine tries to move when oscillating. Any suggestions?

A circular piece of sheet rubber cut neatly and glued to a circular piece of thin hard backing exact diameter of the diameter of the base bolted to the bottom would do ya.


Or, the stained, varnished, and detailed circular wood plaque under the example I once owned came from.........Hobby Lobby for $2-$3.  I put a black mirror finish piece of composite between the wood sub base and fan base I had purchased and had cut at a trophy shop. The trophy shop disc was slightly larger in diameter than the fan base to give a stepped separation between the two bases.  I believe I put soft rubber stem bumpers on the underside of the wood plaque.
