MasterCraft desk fan manufactured in 1947. It’s a truly well-built piece of vintage American manufacturing. Built just after World War II, it’s 8″ fan blade runs like an airplane propeller.

It runs very smoothly and fast. The motor and bearings have been cleaned, then lubricated. The fan also has been rewired, with a new power cord. There is one speed controlled by an on/off switch. This retro desk fan creates a massive amount of airflow for a unit measuring 10.5″ in height. The Chrome fittings and fan blade have been cleaned/ polished. The steel and cast iron parts received a fresh coat of paint.

This fan was built to last forever and it just received it’s 64 year service. It’s ready to give that retro look and quality to your office or home. It does have an oscillating mechanism at the rear, which does not work. I believe the gearing has worn away from years of use. It doesn’t affect the overall purpose or look of this brilliant desk fan. This is a solid metal original and after running for awhile the motor housing will become hot to the touch. This is normal, as there is no plastic on this fan.

Offered at $95.-SOLD
