I have a monster vortalex I dont really need. It still has the original cord and two speed levolier. It runs great on both speeds. Price is $225 if you come and pick it up. I have no interest in packing and shipping this one.

That light tan colored stuff is some sort of paper that's stuck to the paint. It will come off if you soak it for a little while

I can't help with the sale because I'm up to 5 of these puppies already but I can say it's a great fan for use in a residential setting. Quiet and lazy low speed and works great on a capacitor based control to slow it down even further.

Mine runs about 300RPM @ .42amps on a 13mfd capacitor control. So quiet you can't even hear it running.

Sorry to interupt this for sale thread, but can you elaborate on the forum about this capacitor control? I have many Variacs, but this is different, yes?

I have the same model, I run it on a 10 AMP VARIAC at around 90 volts

It was 90 degrees here on the 1st day of October. That circulator is running on low speed right now and doing an excellent job. I ran it all last night too and it kept the house as comfortable as temperatures in the upper 60s will allow. I put the roto beam circulator away a couple weeks ago thinking fan season was over. It looks like I'll get a little use out of this one before I stash it up in the attic for the winter.Unless someone actually comes over with a little cash that is.... I'm not holding my breath  :P

I'm not sure the magical workings of it, but basically you add a second capacitor on the hot line and it interplays with the stock capacitor. Basically I get 80 volts at the line into the fan past the added capacitor. The voltage is line across that cap (which is good), fan runs slow, fan runs cool. All is well.
