1950 or there abouts.  Came out nice.  I love these little fans, easy to fix up, and the paint colors I don't feel bad getting a little crazy on.  It was a runner, slow and gummed up but it did run.  The usual strip down, it was all in good shape.  The bearings I heated in oil, then vacuumed in oil, new "felt washers" cut to size.  One of the bearing retainers was held in with rivits and one with screws.  So I tapped the holes for 4mm, worked perfectly.  The blade I did a quick hand polish, it could really pop if I invested the time, but Im ok with a little wear on it.  Runs smooth, little noise from the blade, but its a sweet little piece.

That would make good affordable gift for someone who is not a collector, and might get them interested in the hobby. Is it easy to remove the stator for painting? I have never removed one from a stamped steel fan.

No issue with dissassembly. Only issue with some of these fans im finding is ones with oilite bearings. Getting those out, like in the westinghouse I have is not easy and sometimes not possible. This creates a huge issue for lubrication. With this fan, patience getting all the parts pried apart from being assembled for so long once the nuts and screws were off too a little bit. The winding are cut very tightly into the case, so it was a lot of working that out. Notes, and pictured of where all the fiber and spacer washers are is very important too. I got this and the westing house for 20$, I would imagine these small ones are everywhere and easy to get. And this was a gift for da wife ;)
