I saw this in an antique store and was intrigued. I was not able to get any information off the motor and the cage is around 24 inches. A homemade shop fan? Any guesses on the pieces and parts?

That's a Leland motor.  Can you get a picture of how the motor is mounted to its stand? If it looks cobbled together sloppy maybe a slap together. The blade looks vintage.

Looks like a Dayton  The base looks like it may be from a old floor lamp?

It had a well made mount that was bolted to bottom. One of the ID badges had something about a "Thermatic" motor that would shut down at a certain temp so it would not overheat.
