This 16" Command-Aire (Diehl) goes with my 10" & 12" collection - - missing the oscillator shaft it seemsWires were bare into switch & motor, taped them up for a test run. The paint is 100%, just some paint specs.
Even the green felt is intact.

Is the blade magnetic? I know some of the Diehl's like this have brass blades.

I have 2 of the diehl. The chrome has a 6 pole motor with brass blades. The black one has a 4 pole motor spinning an aluminum blade. They both run really well, but the chrome is my favorite daily runner. Quiet and moves a ton of air. Also on the black model the motor end bells are a type plastic/Bakelite.
