Just finished restoring my 9" Diehl Oscillating fan, It didn't have motor tag on it so I don't know much about it. Could use some help on manufacture date! The steel band was missing when I got it so I made one of brass. It did not have brushes, springs or caps. Darryl Hudson  fixed me up with some and the process discovered it had wooden brush insulators. 









Pretty cool little fan!

Nice!  Notice how Diehl flipped the armature 180 degrees from the teens 8" models.

Nice, very clean and elegant. How does that little switch work, turn or pull out, push in?

That’s a really uniquely shaped oscillator. Nice!

Don't mean to hijack Bob's nice restore. Diehl fan motors fascinate me. I wish there was more catalogue images for Diehl spanning the 20s.


This brushed AC 10" is ALL cast iron/steel construction with exception of the brass blade and some(not much) hardware. The reason I post is the oscillating mechanism matches Bob's example. Their market time frame in the 20s is not well known, at least by me.
