For sale is a 1905 GE Partners Fan. The factory never made this fan but I did it as if it had been. Fan features ten wire cages, both blades blow air out, and all brass has been aged. The motor has been rewound to have the torque to turn both blades. It is one speed only, with the switch settings being Off-On, Off-On, Off-On. Paint is base coat clear coat and is accented in flat black. Fan is only available for pick up at Fan Fair. Will not ship. $2250. Message me if interested....

That has always been my favorite fan you've built and hope to own it sometime after me and Jaime get married and financially settled. Hopefully it will come back up for sale down the road. Amazing work Kim.

These are a great fan, I love the one that you did for me. GE missed the mark when they didn't make them.

That's a cool modification.

Very nicely done, Kim.

Only one slight engineering
problem...

(Besides the fact of being a GE product!)  :P

Both sides blow inwards,
towards the motor.   :shock:

See y'all soon at FF!  :thumbup

Someone just emailed me
and asked, "Does that mean
that GE 'double sucks?'"

I dunno.





All kidding aside, that's a darn
nice fan, expertly restored by a
master craftsman.

The next owner will not be
disappointed.

Jim, You sooooo funny. You make me laugh longggg time. But honestly, it would be unfair of me to get into a battle of wits with you knowing that you're unarmed...…


And thank you for the payment for the fan. I'm sure you and your partner will love it...

Must be a different Jim.

I don't swing that way.
