        What have we got here?  I believed this to be the model... but there is the smooth base, and the six-wing blade to account for...







        I plucked this spec from another fan's listing, not the 3642...








        Then there's the guard/struts to consider.....








        So, 12-Inch FD Form E ???

Is that another example of GE using last year's model instead of the current year?

The catalog picture is for an 1899 FD 12" form E motor on a new trunnion frame. The white fan has the blade and cage of the 1898 models, of which the dc pancake motor is solid frame. It is not mentioned in the A.R. Everest report for 1898 model offerings. 1896 offers a single speed trunnion mount dc 12 inch cake, then in '97 and '98, the 12 inch dc cake offerings are stick mount. 1899 offers the one as pictured in the catalog page you posted, the 1900 offerings for dc motors are the round ball variety. I'd say the one you pictured in white didn'tr made it into production with the smooth base.....but, never say never...right?

So were different finishes available for all the GE cake fans? If not, when did that start and when did it end?
