Woo-Hoo!  I found a Type "E" today.

No, not one of those pretty R&M cf's.   :?

What I found is one of those cute little
           six inch Polar Cubs,...   a Type "E."













I'm planning to repaint
            it a different color.

I'm thinkin' "green."  :thumbup





Dang it!,...   now I'm jonesing for
some pistachio ice cream and
there's none in the freezer.   :X

You don’t need any ice cream, the little bear is cool enough.  👍

At first half glance,...

                    was coming.   :?

I was just running mine - - nice to have 2 speed switch! Type "D" -those brushes are protected! No flimsy baklite caps to break

I've never seen a Type E with that cage. Usually they have an open ring cage.

My Brother-in-law, fellow AFCA member Gary Mattos, built this customized this Type H Polar Cub for me as a Christmas Gift.  Note he made a brass cage, custom badge, added a switch and a bottom cover among other items.Now one of my very favorite fans!  He is totally infatuated with AC Gilbert/Polar Cub.  Sent him a Polar Cub Hair dryer in original box.  What fun!

Type G's are common - but I just ordered this Sears Branded version, I like the advertising on the tagGee, how many ARCTIC branded fans were there?

I have come to really like polar cubs. The custom brass cage looks great.
