IT IS READY FOR ANOTHER 100 YEARS. Perfect choice for restoring a home over 80 to 100 years old with a fan that would have been originally installed. The Hunter C-17 was produced from 1915 to 1933 and would be the correct Hunter for a home built in that time frame. Because it is finished in white, it is very easy to recoat in your choice of color. Simply sand it down with fine sand paper and apply 2 light coats of your choice. RECENTLY PULLED FROM A OLD HOME IN WORKING CONDITION. DISASSEMBLED ONLY TO VERIFY NO ELECTRICAL SHORTS AND DO BASIC CLEANING & REFINISHING (About 10 hours work). You will notice the last 2 photos show some electrical enhancements. The two wires you see with the red sheath on them are the main lead in wires to the coils. Originally the wires were crammed between the metal coils & the frame with 95 year old paper insulators that posed a very possible shorting hazard. I put the heavy shrink wrap around them and made some additional clearing so they are now well insulated and no longer crammed into place. The other 96 yr old paper insulators between each coil in the last photo were removed and the wires were coated with liquid electrical tape along with the metal frames near each wire. They are well spaced away from the metal frame so they never posed any shorting hazard at all, the liquid electrical tape is only an additional precaution. All solder joints between each coil were good and strong and nothing further was necessary. Shorting wires is what causes the high current that can burn up coils, but other than that there is no reason these coils should not last another 100 years, provided you do not get hit with a direct lightning strike. Guaranteed to arrive as stated, as shown in good working condition. Reasonable offers considered, lowball offers automatically rejected. THIS STYLE FIRST APPEARED IN 1915, 102 YEARS AGO! The style was such a classic it has endured to this day. A note to all the so called experts who will say black was the only color in 1915. Yes this fan has been repainted but white was ITS ORIGINAL COLOR- A Hunter option in 1915. Besides all that, it looks so much better than black in my opinion. We saw only white when refinishing the fan so we have every reason to believe that is the color. Also the adaptair blade system was incorporated in 1920s, so this fan was the first to use the “modern” adaptair system. Drawing only 100 watts on high it is also like the “modern” Energy Star high efficiency fans (except more CFM). Yes that is right, a “modern” fan built about 100 years ago! When it comes to 100 year old American products that are still being used on a. Regular basis this fan has no match. Oh sure there are a few 100 year old machines and cars around in museums but I said American made being. Used on a regular basis by a company still in business making the same type of item? Only Hunter Can make that claim. I challenge you to name me any other 100 year old American product still used on a regular basis and the company is still in business making the same item. I might add, this fan moves a lot of air, more CFM than many new “Energy Star Rated” fans and its current draw is only about 100 watts on high. This was the more desirable Hotel Model that had the speed switch on top of the motor, this prevented the guests from changing the speed as the blades were moving. The other models has a ceramic switch in the base of the fan that have long since quit working. So rather than a model that has been obviously modified with a missing or non-working switch, this model never had a visible one and looks as it did originally (except on the top it had a non-visible speed coil and switch). Likewise a wall mounted light dimmer can be mounted to control the light rather than a pull chain on/off. With a standard 4 opening the light fixture for this fan could incorporate an on/off switch if you wanted to add one. It has a couple of features designed just for ceiling fans. One is a minimum speed setting that insures that fan will spin even at the lowest setting as sending current to fan coils without fan spinning can burn it out. Second is a 3rd wire that goes “hot” 120v AC as soon as the fan speed control is turned on low. Running this 3rd wire to your light will turn it on at full brightness as soon as the fan is turned on. This would involve running 3 wires to your fan instead of 2. You could then add a simple pull chain to turn on/off the light at the globe mount but you would not have any dimming. Personally I like just using 2 controls, one for the fan speed and one for the light dimming mounted side by side. If one fan could be considered the fan called the Granddaddy of the Hunter line, it could be argued that this is it. The Hunter C-17 was without a doubt the workhorse for the company in the 1920s and early 30s. No other fan is most likely as recognizable through the decades as this one model and its offspring. Its popularity encouraged Hunter to continued to make similar models through the decades that followed. The Hunter R-52 and H-52 models are direct descendants of the C-17. You might recognize similar style models that Hunter has marketed in the past 35 years that looks similar, but not exact to the C-17. The C-17 is interesting in that they made the model in the standard style as as shown and also offered it, at least for a short while in an ornamental style that featured grape leaves and vines highlighting its bottom plate and side ornaments. Probably the most famous company to label this model with their own badge was the Western Electric Company. Some of the features of this model include. Dimensions- 10″ length x 12″ diameter. Cast Iron Frame and Motor Housing. Oil Bath Lubrication System Continuously Bathes the Motor Shaft in a Curtain of Oil. Thrust Bearing Design is Immersed in Oil at All Times.
