Decided to sell my Edison.
This fan was purchased from Josh Backens a few years back. One of the few fans he didn’t repaint. This has all original paint in very good condition.

Asking $3750

Nice looking Edison Chris.  Those run quite well on 4.5 volts I think and 6 volts seems to be too high.  A variac and a bridge rectifier will let it run as it should.  The balls in the bearings can be replaced with teflon balls for quieter running without lubrication.

Josh told me he put the Teflon ball bearings in. Though I never confirmed this.
