John,  is it possible when time permits could you please post some decent profile photos of this Menominee round ball I believe to be owned by you? A picture of her underside and switch would be appreciated. Are there any markings or stampings on it? Also interesting is the motor pivot.  Much thanks if you choose to do so!

John, I sent you a PM, maybe you have not seen it yet.  If your not up to posting more pictures, or don't own the fan, or whatever, I am sorry for the intrusion.  If memory serves me right you posted this picture in past. 


I was going to study the pictures as I question if Menominee had the ball motor on the market possibly prior to 11.

I don't have the fan anymore, but I may have pics of the front of the cage.   I know it is unmarked and a heavy tapered cast ring, about twice the mass of the later marked center rings.   The struts are not cast and 2 are marked.  120 volts AC 60 cycles.  I know I don't have a photo of the switch.

There is little doubt(distinct impression) those ball motors were on the market 11-13. There is a Menominee INDUCTION fan motor tab foot advertisement in 1912 with the fiber slide lever in the base. However, Munderloh & Co. started marketing Menominee fan motors in 1912 and Ron Jeter had posted a top slide lever switch Munderloh tagged 8" tab foot.  This would support Menominee manufacturing both top slide lever and bottom fiber slide lever fan motors in ….12. 1911 electrical trade does not support a SWIVEL feature on any of the 8", 12", or 16" DC only desk fans. Another point of interest is Menominee made a strong emphasis that the desk fans ALL had laminated stators in ………..11. I have yet to be aware of 16" Menominee DC(11-12) to surface as of yet.


There is so little to work with in electrical trade to nail down the changes with Menominee fan motors 10-13. We have done much better than in past.
