-I’ll admit I’m a non-oscillator kinda guy..... trying to go to sleep at my grandmothers house

I didn’t like it when the fan would oscillate away and wasn’t blowing directly on me


So as an adult I rarely allow a fan to oscillate   I love non-oscillators 




However while doing some much needed spring cleaning I came across a pair of adjustable oscillator knobs


I had never seen before 


Check these out


















Don’t know what brand they are 


That silver one almost looks like it would work on an Emerson fan


Ya find the strangest things when you do a little spring cleaning in Texas


Stay cool y’all !

I’m saying R&M. Here’s a 10” list number 4212 that looks the same.

Both are R&M. The left one is the brass bladed cast iron gearbox versions, the right one for steel bladed pot metal gear box types.

Thanks guys
I’ve always been kinda a closet R&M guy

The radio speaker fan has always been a favorite of mine

And gosh I made probably a couple dozen aluminum cages for the peacock fans 

A dozen years ago

Good ole R&M !

I’m not in the closet, R&M is definitely my favorite.

I swing both ways - - R&M and Emerson - - like the lady says," we have both kinds of music, country AND western"

The one on the right looks exactly like the one on my RandM 1650.
