|Here's a fan I found at Goodwill yesterday. At first I thought it was the typical Chinese made window fan, but when I saw it was a Marvin with metal blades I thought it worth getting. It also appears to be USA made.
Instead of the usual round two pole Marvin motors, it uses C frame motors like an exhaust fan or desk fan. Also the blades are mounted on rubber grommets like GE fans were, but most Marvins I think had set screws. Unlike most Marvins that run one or both fans for low/high, the motors on this are two speed and both fans run on either speed.
Does anyone know how old this is? My guess is 1990s or maybe even well into the 2000s. I think Marvin stopped selling fans about 10 years ago, when Frost King bought them, although they do still make the sliding screens with the Marvin brand still, I've seen them at Walmart and Home Depot.
