This is one HEAVY FAN. I bought a set of the rubber isolation rings (the originals melted in the hot sun!)1.5 Amps - - Back tag has a date of 1935.Brown crinkle finish in great shape, NOT a residential fan
Rated for continuous service.

Now that is one impressive fan! Hope I can find one of those some day... Those Emersons are great working fans too.

Love that short base. I have a few pedestals but never been able to get my hands on a shorty.

You can replace those rotted out rubber mounting rings for about $25 from Grainger. I haven't bought any in a few years but you can search the forum for my posts. I know that I posted the grainger part numbers here a while back  :up:

I have the pedestal version but I have to restore it because someone repainted it and set it to only run on one speed which i think is low
