6" Western Electric

Recommended Posts

Found this little guy a while back, No blade , no cage and no power cord. I fingered if was a lost cause but when I took it apart the armature looked great and the brushes like new. So I went to work on it. When I got it running the rotation was CC so I started looking blade for CC rotation then I realized that the rotation could be switched by rotating the brush contacts. Added a brass toggle switch on the back and cut a GE blade down to 6". Then made a little brass cage for it. I did put a 1/2 wave dido in the base to slow it down some .

Thank all you guys for the nice comments. Sometimes I find these little fans all trashed out and even though they are not worth much I the need to bring them back some of their glory.
