For the Century fan hard cores. Is this S4 6 wing oscillator visually factory correct? Yes or no. If no, what makes it not correct?

It is not correct because it should be mine?

Well, it's not, so get a grip. We have recently had some Century desk fan saturation on the forum. So, come on people, give Randy Rohr's S4 oscillator a good look over with the fan motor components visible. Everything check out factory, or not?

He also has a DC Kidney I can't live without.

Well, it's not pick on Randy day, possession is 9/10ths the law. That is an old picture, maybe he found an original Century 6 wing blade since then, maybe not. Probably had a 4 wing on it and how boring is that, huh? I missed the Phillips-head screws on the cover, must be slipping. 🙂

Here is the scoop on the 6 wing blade use..........It sure is looking like we are building some strong evidence that the cast base model 6 wing residence models had 6 pole motors and 5 speeds, yet the drawn steel 6 wing models had 4 pole motors and 5 speeds. I have followed Century residence 6 wing models up until 17 they fall off the map in electrical trade. SO..........if you can find an original 6 wing Century blade, based on Century's use of either 6 and 4 pole motors with the 6 wing blade. Why can't you plop a Century 6 wing blade on any 12" model roughly 1912-13 through 16? Based on the shallow pitch of the 6 wing blade......YOU CAN. Fact Jack!

Century 6 wing 12" residence desk fans it appears had their last season on thed market in 1916. 1917 they are no longer listed.
