Hi Guys,
Just thought I’d share a pic of some of my 50-60s all cast aluminium Revelair desk fan collection I’ve put together over the past few years. 10 inch, 12 inch and 16 inch desk models - (all orbital oscillation capable). All restored, polished up and ready for action  - (currently in their winter hibernation ATM) :-)

The pedestal is having its’ bladeset re-painted as we speak. :-)

Thanks Mike,
Got the pedestal fan blade painted. I waited a week for the paint to harden up and she’s up and running again!! It’s actually cream coloured in daylight. :-)

Hi Jan,

Thanks, the Revelair fans really are tanks - easily the most reliable vintage fans I’ve come across so far.

Yes, I remember looking at your polished Revelair pics last year. That must have taken you an age to smooth out those sand cast parts!!! They do look spectacular when polished!

James... :-)

James and Jan,
Beautiful fans I have often admired from a far here in the US.
Thanks to both of you for sharing. Some day I may get myself one.
