Thanks Kim for throwing in some Emerson images even though it probably killed you to do so!

That is an old metal Atwater-Kent radio cabinet that I turned into a fan back in 2014 or so. It has a 1904 GE pancake motor that I turned into a "partners fan" so that it would blow through both openings. I bent up some brass stock and turned the metallions, then had Nick Loos nickel plate the blades and the brass stock. The finish is high gloss slate metallic with a bit of pearl in the clear coat and flat black panels. Made a wood top for it and  hid the choke coil inside  and put the switch thru the other side. Again, it's the result of one of those cautionary tales about idle hands and alcohol.....

That would make a killer piece of furniture in a billiard room.

Kim, how did you photograph the Emerson’s without having an allergic reaction? We’re they photoshopped in to humor the Emerson groupies? :D

(Also, that CW motor is huge. It seems much bigger in person.)
