there are no ID anywhere on this fan I have not found one on e-bay with a base like this one either. It’s has about a  10 inch blade.  It Swivels up and down only. It’s possible the motor has been replaced. Old motor may have had a tag with model #

the badge and id tag would be on the window frame. yours is a removeable unit from a 1956-58 ish twin window convertible unit. the window frame with a 2 speed control stayed in the window and you could pop the two fans out making them single speed floor and desk fans with very short cords. Yours is the small 6" size, there was a bigger 8" size that was three speed... they are good fans, now you have to find another fan and a window frame!

Those are neat units, I am looking at a complete model sitting on the floor in my office; there's another in my kitchen window at home.

Disassembled and painted my vornado. See above picture will post updated picture later.   Reassembly was a bugger. I have a question the motor shaft has backwards and forward movement or thrust I guess. On start up shaft moves at least 1/4 in and runs great until Shut down when it falls back and hits the baffle. Is this movement normal. Do i just need to adjust the blade forward. If so it will come very close to the guard. What am I missing?

Go to a real hardware store and get some fiber washers.

I didn't notice we are neighbors. You should come out to Stan's in October, and down here in Galveston in Feb, I will likely be having another fan meet.
