I have two Westinghouse gyro fans that I am interested in selling. They were working when removed but have been in storage for a few years now.  Any questions please feel free to message me! I have more photos and can give any details needed.    Asking $4,000 each.

The fan blades are brass but have black paint. The quality of the paint and because it matches the fan body makes it seem like manufacturer finish. I am not 100%. The paint is wearing on the back on one blade showing the brass metal underneath.  I also tested the metal with a magnet and it is not magnetic.

Just curious, have you checked the serial #'s to see if they're consecutive?

Hey Tristan,
I am in Lawrence, KS too! Who would have thought there were two gyro fans in storage here. Sorry I can't buy you fans, but please let me know if you have any other fan items you are interested in getting rid of. Best of luck with them!
Doug

Thanks for the information! I thought it looked factory finish because of the quality.
