Very nice. I have an odd obsession with old fans too. Maybe it's the insane danger of losing a finger that was completely acceptable back in the day.

Here is one my buddy and I found while cleaning out his basement. Sandblasted it and coated it and now we have an awesome new fan for the shop.

I've got an old GE fan that would easily take your entire hand off let alone a finger or two.  Will have to fire it up and video it.  I think it's possessed.

Tim def get a video of it chopping a cucumber or something....Learn it's super easy to restore these hardest part is paint which if i do it again i'll get Only Rustoleum not Krylon (it sux and drips like water) but yea solder on a new cord, sand the blades ,paint and reassemble. on ebay people are asking around $150 for a restored one and like $10 for a rusty piece like mine was

I had a hassock floor fan like this one that was handed down from my Grand parents to my folks to me... circulated air 360 degrees, frigging HEAVY!
Wish I still had it.... had to get rid of it when the daughters were at crawling age and wanted to stick their little hands in it.  >:(
