If you have been looking for a beautiful and finely detailed Whiz fan to begin or add to your collection, you may never fine one of higher quality and detail. This fan is finished in Pullman Green custom mixed to closely match the original GE color. This fan has been totally restored in every detail and is the model with the built-in on/off switch. These fans were produced beginning in 1924 and were one of the most popular GE models because they were very affordable compared to other larger models. This is a single speed model featuring an on/off switch with brass blades. It is very quiet and run very smooth with closely balanced blades. This fan has been totally disassembled and all originally painted parts sand blasted clean. These parts were then filed and sanded smooth prior to applying coats of epoxy 2-part automotive primer. Then, after wet sanding, two coats of 2-part automotive acrylic enamel were applied in Pullman Green. Then two coats of 2-part clear-coat were then applied over the green enamel for additional hardened protection and then rubbed out for a lasting shine. I think the photos show the true color and beauty fairly well. The old wiring has been replaced from head wire to line cord using old style cloth covered wire, soldered and heat shrunk to the stator which has been fully inspected and coated with liquid insulation where needed. Finally, a new antique style plug was installed onto the new cloth line cord. The switch contact surfaces have been cleaned and adjusted for positive action. New rubber grommets replace all of the old original ones. All of the brass components including screws, oil reservoirs, nameplate and badge have been finely polished with clear coating applied for added protection. The oil reservoirs have been cleaned with new wicking installed, adjusted and filled with fresh oil to provide positive shaft lubrication. New green felt has been tightly applied to the base to protect table or furniture surfaces. The brass blades measure 9-inches in diameter and the cage is 10 inches across. The base is 6 inches in diameter and the total height including the cage is approximately 12 inches. Although I use high quality materials, best wiring practices, care and workmanship, I cannot be responsible for the design and safety of these fans, especially guarding, which is inherent in their early designs.
