from the ad image...

Like I said, VP Rocky:Ain't mine.  :pacifier:
But it can be yours
                       for a mere...

      $10.5K !

Surely a man in your position
can "borrow" $10,500.00 from
the AFCA petty cash account?  :wondering:

Jim or Russ,


With your voluminous records and ability to find internet information, I wonder if you can tell me more about some of the later Knapp battery fans.

I'm looking at three, but as you know I stopped posting pictures!

First is a footed cast iron type 145 brass and brass with 7 3/4 inch blade and single speed sliding switch in the base.

Second is a stamped steel type 660 (with the info on the badge) with a 6 3/8" aluminum blade and close steel guard. The motor is 3 inches in diameter and no switch. 

Third is a stamped steel type KZ in khaki with no guard also with a 6 3/8 aluminum blade.  This motor is 2 1/2 inches in diameter and no switch.

Thanks for any help, and I do realize that some say "if it isn't pictured it doesn't exist", so let's see some.

Pretty straight forward cage construction.

Spokes wrapped around the center ring,...
the front ring...  and the back ring.





Wrapped all except for...



A spoke terminating into a strut?

How does that work?  :wondering:

Blurry.     Kinda hard to see...

Maybe the strut end is bifurcated and
straddles a wrapped spoke joint?   :wondering:
