I've had this Westy Riviera Fan since last year. I bought it at a flea market in Long Beach for $30, it's small at 8".

Enjoy! -

That's a nice one! I love how powerful those Rivieras are, they not only move a huge volume of air but it's quite a forceful breeze too.

I've got a R2020 in my own collection and it's a total beast for a 10" fan.

Yeah this thing puts out a lot of air for the size.

You must be in a good region. It's tricky to find good fans out here - but they are out there.

Very nice fan! I love the look of these Westinghouse Riviera fans. I bet with that steep pitched blade set, it really moves the air well for its size.

It is! This will project the air stream across the shop, which is a bit bigger than a generous sized single car garage.
