Wizard is a name used by Western Auto. I can not find anything on it but the Wizard name on the badge. Its 12 inch box fan in very good condition.

Don't know who actually made it, but Wizard was a Western Auto brand.

THOSE WERE MADE BY BERSTED UNDER MANY NAMES, ESKIMO, ZERO, LIDO SUPER JET, TOASTMASTER, CORONADO ...I BELIEVE THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A SEARS VERSION...

I love these little fans. They put out a good amount of air for the size. I will oil and repaint it same color.

I have the 20" version of that fan, badged as an Eskimo, its early 1960's vintage and mine was one I picked up from Goodwill for $5 they were going to scrap it out so I bought it from the scrap heap when I worked there half a decade ago. I replaced the power cord and oiled up the motor and straightened out the blade and it is one of my best running box fans in my collection with a 1 minute and 20 second spindown time.  :clap: :D :dude:

Ed, they came as Edison, McGraw Edison and other names as well, ,but it also came as a 14" and there was a 12" with a 3 wing blade that turned CCW and a later version with plastic front grille and 3 wing smoke blade and also a 5 wing blade version in 12 or 14" ...they got a lot of mileage out of this box design
