Very beautiful and RARE Antique GENERAL ELECTRIC Oscillating fan with Brass blades and cage. Has a repair on KIDNEY HOUSING WITH epoxy glue. Runs smoothly and powerfully. The 1911 GE Kidney fan was GE’s second attempt at an oscillating fan. Due to its use of pot-metal (cast zinc), this fan was likely much less expensive to manufacture than GE’s first oscillator. Unfortunately the use of this material combined with design decisions made this fan a very poor long-term survivor. Nearly any Kidney fan that is available today is either lacking the kidney gearbox or the gearbox is in very poor condition. Despite its materials, a properly restored Kidney fan is a true pleasure to own. The fan shown here is quiet, reliable, and very simple to use. Simply switch the lever from “OUT” to “IN” and the oscillation action begins. Tilt is adjusted by pulling the spring-loaded plunger arm on the right side of the fan and moving the fan to your desired position. Will be carefully disassembled, and carefully packed. Listing several beautiful fans from GE Pancake to Emerson and more. The item “RARE Antique General Electric GE 1911 KIDNEY Oscillating Fan 16 brass blades” is in sale since Saturday, March 30, 2019.
