It pains me to have to do this, but I have to sell my early WH Tank. It has been a journey to get this fan where it is today, and it is definitely a head turner.

The fan is not %100 original. The stator that was in it was kaput, so it has been replaced with a later style tank stator and acorn nuts. Has the 104v variant motor tag, even though it is now 110-120v. This fan was restored/preserved to be as close as possible to the original standards. Paint is at about 95%. A great fan for a good home!

Fan will be shipped carefully in two boxes in order to ensure safe arrival. $995 + postage or pickup


Cheers!

Cheers Jamie!

I appreciate it. I still marvel at how utilitarian and well constructed tanks are. This Style No. 60677 was marketed at $27.00 in 1906. It seems cheap now but that was equivalent to a little over $740.00 today according to inflation calculators.

Raw deal that you have to sell your fan, I know you went through a lot getting it where it is now. If I didn't already have one, I'd probably be hitting you up.

Thank you Richard! Truth be told a good part of me is hoping it stays on me shelf for at least a little while longer. Displays great next to my all original tank. I actually had made it into a really cool art display for a while.

I had Ted make a custom blade for mine. It was real rusty so I’ll be having it custom painted too. It’s not original so why not?
