Tag doesn't have much information.     I have never a BMY DC fan before.

Very cool find, a picture of the back please. ๐Ÿ‘ Does it look like itโ€™s smiling at you? Iโ€™m curious if the cage is bent in an odd way.  It looks like itโ€™s mounted to the wrong side of the screws on the struts.  ๐Ÿค”

I snagged it of ebay yesterday.    It popped up when I was on and I bought it within a minute of it being posted.    I will update the post once it gets here.    You can see the tip of the brush cap in 1 picture.   I have a 3 more 12" BMY's so I have another cage.
While I am on here.   One of the 12"  BMY's serial # starts with 37 and it has a 2 wire head wire.   How early is that?

Where do the struts mount on the motor housing? Do they mount on the top of the front housing, or are the struts flat and mounted on the front of the housing?

Your fan was manufactured early to ..?.. 1910 fan motor season. Sometime during 1910 fan motor season GE did start manufacture of the phase shift start fan motors. It would make sense it was the later part of 10?

This came in today.     It was posted as "Doesn't run"   I little oil and a Bridge rectifier and it is purring nicely on the work bench.   Only  runs on #3 speed though so I will have to crack it open and look around.

Congrats Anthony.  A while back I found one and had some discussion about the size. I was thinking we decided on medium but after looking at the post again it is a bmy. .  Iโ€™m not sure if Iโ€™m doing this correctly but Iโ€™ll try to put the link up.  Itโ€™s always sweet to find a DC fan in my opinion.  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ It seems the date just has to be torn off the original label every time. ๐Ÿ˜’  http://www.afcaforum.com/view_topic.php?id=47720&forum_id=1&highlight=Medium+motor+

Good info in the link.     I took the switch out and blew it out with air hose and wiped all the dust bunnies out and cleaned the contacts,  put a new power cable on it and boom... ...  runs on all 3 speeds.
The Switch tube is different than yours in your picture.   This one has a black tube with a 210amp GE Sticker on it.
