Antique Fans
« on: October 02, 2019, 01:28:50 pm »
The first two i`ve had for years and got them out and fixed them up.



The big one we just got from a junk dealer and restored it.



The last one we made from parts, the base was bought at a garage sale.

Got the ceiling fan at a thrift store for a dollar  :)






It wobbles because it`s sitting on the carpet.

A nice conversion on the Thrift Store Ceiling Fan.

Looks like it will move some air!

Thanks Charlie, i`m thinking about taking it apart and putting short blades on it and on a low stand more like a original pancake fan was.
