Ok. So hey fandom.  My first post. Huzzah.  I have always liked fans, but never really been a collector. Typically I find them curbside, and use them, like the Westinghouse Hassock I found a couple years ago. But for the first time, I actually bought a couple oldies yesterday.  One was easy to ID, even though it’s badge was gone; a Polar Cub. The other, though clearly marked Westinghouse, eluded me, until I saw this on flEbay:  




Well, what do you know about this one? I looked it up on the site here, and only got two hits. Is it really that rare?











I haven’t plugged it in though it looks fairly safe, as the cord has been replaced sometimes in the last 25 years I guess.  So, if you had to slap this on the first timers luck scale, how’d I do? 
Peter

Edit: over sixty views, and no comments. Oh well. Must not be that interesting...

Congratulations on the finds.  The Pacemaker is a reliable fan that with a little TLC will last you forever.  Be careful diving into this hobby.  It's get addictive!

I am attempting to transfer my current addiction to large, cast iron wood and metal working machinery, to something a little more manageable, space-wise.  The older cast-iron fans are my real target, but as of late, have seen few I am willing to chase.  I sold this one, when we adopted our 1yo daughter, and have regretted it ever since:


Though found on the curb, this cleaned up nicely. Hard to let go, but the $450 I got on eBay made me feel better.

Ha Ha I am going the other direction. I have had lots of fans and I just got a South Bend Heavy 10 Lathe for free. Now that thing has a lot of super heavy cast iron with it. I am still in the process of setting it up. I moved it completely by my self. That was a real chore!

Amazing, Don! A Heavy 10? Sweet. I own every big iron machine out there but a metal lathe. Not for wanting tho. I have a small shop, and have yet to find the right machine. The Atlas /CMan are just too flimsy. One thing about metal lathes. They’re a lot like color printers. The money isn’t in the machine, it’s in all the tooling and the stock.

Anyways, I love the look, and quality of these air movers, as well as industrial lighting like OC White. And it saves my back. Don’t make ‘me like they used to.

Once this Covid stuff calms down, find a meet in your area.  Best place to find affordable fans to fulfill your sweet tooth.
