Can anyone provide any additional information, ads, or a catalog image for this little "No. 11" bipolar fan? I'm assuming it's 6V DC. Apparently made by Mr. Atwater Kent's pre-radio company, the Kent Electrical Mfg Co. Eight-inch blades are not original. Thank you.

You have a Kenco #8. I think that stood for Knapp Electric Novelty Company. I have an original if you need images. I think they run on 6 VDC.

Steve,
Thanks for the input, but the first photo shows that it's Kent Electric Mfg. Co. It's also identical to Kent fans advertised in the late 1890s (see below).

Thanks Russ. Do you have a date and source for your first post?

The electrical trade article I posted dates 7/98. I would say your Kent motor was intended for utility purpose with the pulley directly behind the 8" Hamilton Beach blade dating 20th century.  If you had the correct Kent fan motor blade, your blade wing would have a 3 rivet triangular pattern with the blade being 10" in diameter.

Notice Kent is using the James Mason early 98 filed patent "ODDO" battery fan motor/utility motor.  Kent made some modifications to Mason's patented design and turned the motor around.

Thanks. As I said in the first post, blades are not original and don't even know if the pitch is in the right direction, but they look good. I also see little need for the tripod base on a utility motor. It will be a fan as long as I'm the owner and will eventually make the correct 10" blade set.

Kent changed the brush arrangement announced in 99 electrical trade.

Don't forget your guard. You have the screws to mount it. Fact jack.   :D

You're right. Hadn't even noticed those mounting screws on the front.
