I bought a Hamilton Beech Home Motor motor, 25 years or so ago from Jim Daggs, with the youthful faith and hopeful enthusiasm... that someone would have one that eventually... someone would have spawned or cross bred a repop of their Home Motor/Sewing machine fan conversion.  
Well, the fan collection is still a dominating factor to the unsuspecting bystander... as in "Wow... what do you do with a fan ever few feet in this small of a house?"  Daggs motor has since migrated to the barn... which in fan collecting, is never a very good sign.  (I still have a genuine Madison Bittner 6 blade emmy that is waiting to come in out of the cold) 

Has anyone a lead on a cage and blade kit for these critters?  This has paid its dues, and needs to get completed, really or rehomed in the near future if this is a dead end hunt.

Hamilton Beach Franki'nFan - - strapped on to a 16" Tank base & finished with dimestore cage & blade!! Good luck finishing yours, those are neat with the square chrome base.

Actually the cage he’s referring to was a kit to add to the sewing machine motor as you see it pictured. No square base. I have one but it’s packed. It’s a cute little fan, and one of my wife’s favorites

Polar cub also sold kits with interchangeable parts, like a vibrator, mixer, fan, etc.

How would you like to find the "deluxe cabinet" chock full of parts?

That would be a cool find.  You just know there has to be a few in the bottom of an old trunk or closet some place.
