Eskimo Spider Web (Cob Web), 10 Inch Single Speed Oscillator, Model 1005J, Bersted Manufacturing Company, Circa 1945

A collection of images from a restored World War II era electric fan with a detailed level of workmanship. Has a 2 pole motor with light aluminum blade. The only sound it makes is from the 3600 r.p.m. high speed blade rotation and is much like a prop airplane. Registering in the pink noise range it has some benefit during sleep such as improved daytime memory. The effective range for this fan is 6-12 feet and is a little beyond desktop usage.

Not exactly a collector's item, but people seem to be drawn to the spider web cage (sometimes called a cob web cage). Have seen models like this one go from $100 to $200 in lesser condition.

The flash from the camera reveals imperfections and discolorations that can only been seen under magnification and under abnormal lighting conditions. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled. Shrinking the browser window will shrink its contents possibly making it easier to view the gallery.

Valued in the range of $145 - $160.
