I do have what could be the motor for this fan, however!

Arnaud’s Restaurant in New Orleans had a lot of these Diehls hanging. I was there for a National Clock Convention years ago. I was not allowed in the dining room, even at Lunch. Pants required. A friend took images of the fans but I never got them. On the way out I spoke with the young lady at the front, seating people. She said they had remodeled a few years ago. The original motors were replaced with new motors.

In Jim’s third picture, with men around the large round table, the fan on the left is Diehl’s #16 ceiling fan. There are many of these

still in Galatoire’s restaurant, also in NOLA! As I understand it, some years ago

these motors were also replaced with modern motors...no idea where the original motors went! SIGH!

Alas, none yet that I am aware of, Jim! Perhaps one day! Hope springs eternal! 😎

How long did Diehl use this design and did the solid bracket predate it?

The motor design is similar to the Dayton Oakleaf: donut-shaped armature spinning within two hollow half-moon firld poles.

Yes, quite similar...both are “Gramme” ring armatures in a bipolar field. The same electro-mechanical principle was employed in most of the early bipolar motors of C&C, Crocker-Wheeler, Holtzer-Cabot, Bates, Backus, Sterling and many others! Sure would like to find the housing for that Diehl ceiling fan!

The open spear point brackets were used on Diehl’s earliest fans, including their belt-driven fans; the solid spears were used on the Diehl no 26 and 27 fans, some time later.

My Dayton is the smoothest running ceiling fan that I have had. Being DC, they have great starting torque and can run at super slow speed. Designed for 250 VDC, I run it on 120-60 VDC.

Agreed, David! My avatar fan is made off a Marelli 250 volt DC motor and runs at a perfec speed on 110 volts DC!
