I picked this fan up today from an antique store in Ft. Myers, Fl for 20 bucks!  Can anyone tell me what year it is and is it missing a front badge or did they sell them without?

1925 is the earliest so far I can trace back United Electric Co. "Eskimo" trademark desk fans.


Merchandising week 1925 Fan Electrical Merchandising. June, 1925 The United Electrical Manufacturing Company, Adrian, Mich., is now marketing the "Eskimo" 8-ln. electric fan which has universal motor. 25 to 60 cycles, 110-120 volts.

United Electric Co. of Adrian, MI. as a fan manufacturer(Eskimo) it appears was on board from 1925-35.  Al Bersted bought the Adrian, MI. concern in 1936.

Clean it up and should be a good fan for you, I have two  model tens .
I'm looking for a model 5.
   clean the commentator that is the part  where the  brushes  contacts the armature.

Not much different that the 10 .
Might have a smaller  blade?
Russ may chime in on that.
This is a picture of a commutator being under cut.
 you can do this by hand .
I use a old hack saw blade ground to suit. and watch the corner  where it comes up to where the wires connect,to the left hand side(of picture below)   so you don't make a short.
the grooves .005 -.015 deep should be  good this will make the motor run smother and quieter.

This is what you badge should look like.
Russ may have one  or there may be reproductions.

Based off of the image Mike Kearns posted I do not think it had a front badge?  It has its tank badge and the cage shows no sign of ever having a badge attached.

Probably early and late models .
It probably was cheaper to make  the decals than make a badge.

It actually has a very nice metal tag on the tank!
