Hello All!

Today for your consideration is a Westinghouse Tesla stump. This fan would make a great restoration project and overall is the nice base of a lovely desirable fan. Comes with stump, struts, and oil cups.





I honestly have no desire to sell this fan, so it is for trade only. I personally find trades fun as both parties can get a fan they may want more. I would probably be willing to accept an Emerson Tripod, 1898 GE cake, Colonial Ball motor, or any Lundell (condition for these doesn’t matter much). I may also take an Emerson 12666 in decent shape. If you have something else you’d like to trade, shoot me a PM! I don’t bite and the worst I can say is “No thanks”! 😁

Really? No one has anything they’d like to trade? Teslas don’t come up often...

I hate to say this Sean but the fans you mentioned are 4000K+ and the 12666 is at least $2000. The Lundell is difficult to find and is way above what a complete Tesla is worth. I wouldn't pay more than $400 for the parts shown and a complete unrestored Tesla shouldn't be more than $3500.

I mean, most of the fans I was requesting, I said “condition doesn’t matter” meaning they could also be stumps / parts fans... The brass on this one could be remade. Really the only thing that would be difficult to find is the switch.

Really the only thing that would be difficult to find is the switch.Other than a 12666, all the fans you listed are worth more than the Tesla stump in the same condition as your fan. Finding parts for those will be difficult, even the 12666 hub. I strongly recommend that you look for good complete/near complete examples as that will cost you much less in the long run. Rare fans will likely be missing parts (that's par for the course) but again, look for good fans unless you have the parts on hand. Trust me, getting people to sell/trade the fans you are looking for will be difficult to say the least, even if you have the requisite cash.
