Hey everyone. Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the weekend!! Today my best friend found me a fan locally. He’s a good picker.. found me a all steel 12” Diehl Six blade. This fan is HEAVY. I serviced it by replacing wicks adding new oil and cleaning out the old crummy oil and grease. Switch was stuck off.. tested the fan with the head wires and she runs!! Gonna make this fan look sweet! 



Any info on this beaut? I’m lost on it!


Thanks.




Matt

Wonder if those have a 6 pole motor?

The motor spins slowly. Fan didn’t seem to be flying fast. Stator is healthy. Maybe it is a six pole motor? Neat info!

Those are fairly scarce, not many Diehl six wingers out there. 
Russ, have never opened the motor on mine but certain it is either a six pole or a high slip. Nice smooth runner.

I can agree to that too Stan.  Very nice smooth running fan. Never seen a 12” six blade until I got this one. Rather pretty fan too. Didn’t seem to be that stamped steel casing like the Westinghouse’s etc.

The difference between a 4 and 6 pole motor is roughly 1550 RPM and 1150 RPM full wall current.  You will notice a 400 RPM drop. The strobes with digital read out are great for clocking blade speed.


My guess is that one is late 20s.  Well built for sure.

Will have To clock mine and see what she runs at. Thanks for the info Russ!! I’m sure it’s late 20s too. VERY well built. Simple look but still beautiful.

That is a very nice fan. Nothing to be critical about at all on that one. Dolled up inside and out it would be right up there with some of the best. 6 pole motors make nice family room, office, and bedroom fans.  That is what they were designed for. :bigfan

A tip with simulation chrome powder coating. Clean it with soft rag and soapy water. Anything abrasive such as buffing compound will turn the treated area dull gray. The powder simulation chrome has more luster and is hardier than rattle can simulation chrome, but you have to be careful with it the finish.
