I finally finished My Diehl Pullman Train Car Fan! I bought it from Chad Baker, It had some parts missing ( new that when I bought it) Nick Loos did the blade, Darryl Hudson made me some brush insulators and new brushes w/springs. Got a transform form Randy Rohr and Finally found a wall mount from Carlton Ward. I have wanted one because of my family's history with the Rail Road. They are really cool fans.

whats the power source for the fan? I see there something inside the case the fan is mounted to.
I'm assuming its a modified Hewlett Packard 32v Printer Power Supply Brick?

Levi, I got a 30V DC transformer unit from Randy Rohr. What amazed me was the motor, the bearings were like new the winding was in great shape (replaced the leads coming off of it) and the ammeter no ware on the commutator,just a little cleaning. I fabricated the display stand ,heavy.






Thank: Bobby

Randy, The 30volt power supplies that you made for me work wonderfully.
