Here lately I’ve found more old Emersons than I ever have. Unfortunately they are all in need of a ton of love. Today’s find is a 1320.  At first I thought it was a 1220 until I got the crud off the tag.  Apparently it’s a 16” 6 wing.  The seller said it used to run but a wire pulled out of the back.  I was worried at first that the rotor was going to be junk because of the ridiculous blade someone installed.   Fortunately it was attached to an actual hub. Here’s some pictures.  😎

That’s interesting! I’m always amazed at the lengths people went to to get their fan running again!

Aren't there only two or three of these known to exist?

That's the scarce variation with the aluminum blade.

I’m figuring it will take $1000 just in parts to get it up and running.  Any idea what a complete one is worth?  I’m guessing I’m still going to be in it for a reasonable price when it’s all said and done.  🤞

Steve that's an incredible find.  Congrats.
You'll get the parts in due time.  Worth the investment and patience to get the parts to finish such a rare Emerson.  Methinks there are 2-3 known.  

Finding or repoping that 6 wing cast hub assembly will be the biggest challenge.  I believe the 1320 and 1620 are the only variants that would have the correct hub style.  The 24668 has a the bump out for the oscillating drive shaft.

Thanks for the kind words and information.  Russ, those wings don’t even look like there’s enough room for the air to make it through! 😬   I thought the soldered on two studs was a repair, but evidently it’s factory.   👍

It is the only 16" stationary 6 pole Emerson ever made. Back in 2012-13 when I was living in Iowa I found a Emerson 24668(16" 6 wing 6 pole) in an antique shop in Oskaloosa, Iowa with a intact cast hub 16" blade. They wanted $250.00-$300.00 back then so I left it there. They told me it had been there for a while. I did post I found it in Oskaloosa on the forum for poops & giggles same day I found it. It was gone within a week.  :D  I should have bought it, that blade despite being an oscillator would work for your fan.

Any chance a hub from a 12666 would be able to rewing with 16” wings?

16" cast hub has the extended finger to support the longer wing.

you could , Menominee used the same hub for 12" & 16" fans I believe and the fingers were shorter than those on a 12" 6-wing Emerson hub. Hey if U  R going to try that , get a rough 19666 blade & use that hub. Then it would almost look authentic from the front. I found the blade 20 years ago & hung onto it hoping ,and only 2 years ago did I spot and win a 1320 with wrong blade on ebay.  U R right about the 6 wings , the 1320 blade is pitched so shallow that it moves very little air. I've never seen a 1620 before but I understand that Emerson Bill has one. I wonder if they improved the pitch on that one ? They sure corrected that problem with the cast 24668 blade.  Great find no matter how difficult to complete. :up:

24668 cast hub. D amn, I should have bought the one I spotted it in Oskaloosa.  That's what happens when you get cheap.  :D

Cheap is in the eyes of the beholder.  After I handed the guy $300 for this stump I asked where he got it and for how much.  He chuckled and said I didn’t want to know.  I told him it wouldn’t hurt my feelings.   He finally said he bought it at an auction for $25.

The guy charged me almost $300.00 for this rust bucket. He thought it was to unique to let it go cheap.  He would not bend an inch. I needed the bullet and speed control to duplicate. He added to the pain by telling me he picked it off of some ones front yard going to the dump pile. I made his day, in the long run he made mine.  :D

Imagine the picker in Buffalo NY who picked a Peerless crank by just asking if there were any unused items in the home they might sell , then flipped it on ePay for 5 figures. :shock:

Doesn't that fan reside on top of a piano somewhere in Arkansas?

There was a guy at private residence just outside of Oskaloosa that had rib base Emersons wall mounted. He had pile of stuff out back with a barrel containing a 21666 and 24645. He wouldn't sell at any price. I got a kick out of that.  I posted images of the rib base models back then.  At Batavia I found a 11666 laying in an old tire. Gotta love Eyoha.  :D

Check out the agencies for early fan motors in Iowa.
