I have these two early Arctic Aires fans, a small one and the medium one -- 9" & 12" I think. I've had them forever. They are super art-deco, and complete but for typical roughness. I'm not sure if they run, but the cords are toast for sure. I've only ever seen a handful of these early models and was hoping to learn more info. I could be mistaken, but I believe them to be 1939, first year/model for these fans. They are distinguished by the oscillator engagement knob being recessed into the rear motor cover -- very streamlined. That's about all I know, so I'd love to hear from the experts. Are they any good? Worth restoring? I haven't tried to restore a fan this new in ages. I don't like pot metal, phenolic gears, or any other self-destructo parts. Are they are things to look out for? Did they only made this design for one year because it sucked (I know Fasco made later variations for many years)? Thanks, fan dudes and fan dudettes!
