This fan is a 3 speed from the late 1920's.The blades are micarta. I decided to do a little custom work on it. The cage was painted over brass so I stripped off the paint and let the brass show. I painted the base a dark red. It runs smooth and gives off a soft breeze and doesn't blow the papers off the desk. :D









The speed coil is incased in the porcelain. 





AC motor with brushes






Added rubber washers to mount the motor. Darryl Hudson made me two mounting studs and rubber feet.








Added rubber shims to stabilize the motor.





Bought the twisted wire with the cloth covering from Tony Clayton. Very flexable, great work!









Access holes for oiling.



Access hole to replace brushes.

WOW that is some eye candy Vic. BEAUTIFUL work! I love the gold lettering against the red base. That's a stunner!

The picture in the middle is very interesting. The stand that the fan is setting on is so cool. Wonder if that was an option. I also noticed that the first picture shows the fan having a screw in socket plug.Thanks so much for those Russ!
