The original blade that came on the fan when found at a flea market was actually a cast brass hub early Tank blade that had two wings sawed off. Being an impossible blade to locate, we used a stamped brass hub blade that Westinghouse quickly adopted on the early Tanks.
I have not tested it lately, but it ran when first restored. I only displayed it through the years because of the 133 cycles only allowed it to run a short while at about 1/2 speed. It was only shown to a handful of collectors and has never been shown at Fan Fair, so it has largely been incognito through the years. I displayed it at home without a cord, because I considered it a nuisance on the shelf.Please ask any questions and I will be happy to answer. Out of curiosity and some request, I checked to see if the fan would run. I was unable to make it run through the switch though the switch is complete and the coil does not appear to be burned out. I bypassed the switch and was able to get it to run directly to the head wire after a push on the blade. Please see all images for a pictorial description and ask any questions.
