When i first got this fan it was a heap of rust. After many hours with wd40, the wirewheel, and paint i got all but the cage and blades done up. To my suprise it runs and it runs strong. Puts out more air than you would think for a 12” fan. Mircata blades (propbably one of the last of the mircata before westinghouse switched to plastic). I got the cage its just not on. Really well made especially for a fan from the 50s cast iron/ aluminum.
Would anyone happen to know how old it is?
