It is GE.  Ain't it?   :wondering:

Probably a DC base, not sure of the year.

I have a DC pancake trunnion base somewhere. It looks similar, but I don't recall the holes for the connections. I would have to dig it out. I meant to bring it to Indy for Kim to identify but forgot.

    The first fan in the 5th post is 1896 12 inch trunnion type FD form A . It has 1-1/2 inch of iron in the fields. The base is fluted
    The second picture has a step pulley on the shaft. My guess for the holes in the base is to secure the motor. The holes are not on the same circumference as the holes on the 1899 bracket base pictured in the sixth post.
    All four fans pictured in the 8th post are 1899 models.
    The picture that Steve posted  in the 10th post is a 1899 12 inch trunnion type FD form E. That base is fluted and has a boss cast into it for the terminals. Also the last year for that style of motor and base in DC.
    The DC offerings in '97 and '98 were stickmount and smooth base.

Nice. That is the base for the 1899 DC pancake motor. I have only seen one DC pancake and it is the 1897 12 inch solid frame model. I have worked on the 12 inch 1899 DC stickmount but it is the roundball motor....You've heard of the Gemerson. It is a '97/98 12 inch DC pancake with a 1899 GE cage and struts on it. It has a four wing Parker blade on it and a motor tag claiming it to be an Emerson. In reality it would have a cage with integrated struts and a six wing blade. I guess that would make it the "second" DC GE pancake I've seen.


The base holes are for the exposed cord terminals and headwire to exit up to the rear motor terminals, just like the Bracket fans and the 16 inch type UI form C.....

Rick's fan that was on the cover of the latest issue doesn't count? I know it was a pic, but still, I almost fell off the throne. You need to get him to bring that up north so we can all see it...

Rick's fan is the first DC Pancake I ever saw. It doesn't belong to Rick anymore, as it changed hands last Spring. Bill Hoehn's "Gemerson", is a stump with parts not original to it. Here is how it should look....which by the way, this image will be gracing the back of the new AFC museum tee-shirts coming out next year...
