Hello all! I was looking at the plug that came with my reproduction wire for my Emerson 14666 when it came to my attention a "screw plug" would have originally been on the fan? I am quite confused on these plugs and their variants. When were these in use? when did modern plugs come into use? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Any of the plugs in here would work, cost, go with benjamins, spend, go brass and porcelain. Chad has a super nice brass porcelain on his site.

Thanks for the kind words, Mike, but only nailed a few.  My error is during many book scans of past I did not copy and paste into file plug advertisements. 


Your last request I am sure is in the abyss. I don't recognize it. No shiny quarter for me....yet.  :D

This could be mistaken as Hubbell.  It is either Cutler-Hammer or Crouse Hinds.  I am to lazy to dig for the answer right now.  :D.

You don't have to have a fancy rare/shiny attaching plug for your turn of century appliance.  The more common Hubbell and Benjamin will do ya.  :clap:

Sometimes found in NOS condition.

There's more people looking. 10 years ago there were less. There's 2 heavy lamp parts collectors within 3 miles of me, they even found one of my haunts in north liberty last year. It's tough out there now.
