Hi folks, greetings from Brazil. Found this little heater fan today, built in at least 1957 by Faet S.A., a company founded in Rio in 1927. It's a simple shaded pole fan with heating elements, switched individually, in an all metal casing.

Paint is really rough, and chrome was the same before I cleaned it. Looks like it's been somewhere really wet recently.

Blade hub looks like and says "Faet, Brazilian Manufactured". Cleaned the dust from the motor and oiled the little bearings also. That's it, thought you'd like it. Enjoy :)

That looks to be very well made. Thanks for sharing it!

I have an Arvin heater with similar "standard design" switch arrangement in the base as well. Makes it easy to replace if the switch goes bad.
