Here is a new addition to my cast aluminum pedestal fan collection. It's an original condition Roto Beam Model 18 with a General Electric direct current motor. Its plug and play and only one rpm on the motor tag. I'm guessing it probably had an inline switch when new. The motor has been refurbished with new bearings and brushes. The base still has that deep clear gloss finish which I love. The chrome is the only thing that didn't hold up too well. It's the normal fresh nd aire bad chrome finish.
