They are very scarce. Geoff Dunaway has at least one.

This example pictured has a Diehl 6 wing blade. Can anyone out there validate they have a FACTORY 6 pole motor on their Century 6 wing residence fan motor?  Century DID offer RESIDENCE 6 wing desk fans listed in the ELECTRICAL RECORD for a few years.  Menominee offered 6 wing residence fan motors to keep up with the competition. Menominee however did not manufacture the 6 pole lower RPM induction motors to compliment the 6 wing blade.

Those are not my fans, the images were taken from a past post. I do believe one of them is credited to Geoff Dunaway.  It is hard to credit all the images used of past on present posts. I use them for the benefit of fan motor history accuracy.

 I can take responsibility for the 1st image , the 2nd is from Trevor Soundararagen or Mr T. He traded it in last year on a 6 wing S-4 century fan. I'm not sure about the rest of the images but I agree that one of those fans is sporting a nice Diehl 6-wing blade.   :D

Bill would your sons be terribly upset if you adopted me at this stage of life? I will happily live in your basement and polish your fans.

 Hey Bill ,  you must have been into the back of the 6-wing century fans to have them looking so good. Are they driven by 6 or 4 pole motors ??

Hey guys, I had a 6-wing Century S4 for many years and is now Trevor's fan. I was never in the motor but I was able to verify 6 poles the best I could through the big vent holes. The real proof in in the running speed that matches a 6-pole motor at 1150 on high which I measured. The S4 is a powerful motor and this speed is not obtained by blade load. If you ever see a 6-pole S4 start and run in person you will know exactly what I'm trying to describe.
