I finished restoring a late 1890’s Dayton ceiling fan that I bought from a man in India. 
When I get time, I’ll post detailed photos of the process.

It’s ready for glaze filler and primer, once the weather gets better.

Very nice. I wish I had a couple of those to hang in my house.

That is a very heavy ceiling fan.

Just under 50 pounds with blades. A relative lightweight. 

Emerson Longnose is just under 60 pounds. 

A Westy Sidewinder is 52 pounds. 

Hunter C18 is 49 pounds. 

Baby Sidewinder is 22 pounds. 

I’m currently working on a Westy Deluxe that beats both of these. It’s stator coil is 21-1/2 pounds, rotor is 20 pounds, housing and oil cup is 23 pounds, blades are 4 pounds. 68 pounds total. 

I worked on an R&M E that might be worst than these.

I am not sure but I think my Dayton 70 is heavier than all of those. I wish I had all of the parts for it.

Also, as soon as you climb a ladder with one and hold it up over your head to hook it, it gets 20 pounds heavier.

David,

You have restored a great fan. That is one of the best or could even be the best looking motor casting design of all ceiling fans. I finished mine by blackening the brass then removing the high parts with a Dremal tool to show the casting design.

Close up of the motor tag. Does your motor tag look like this?
