This was a fan that was destined for the dumpster today at the scrap metal drive and I tried it out and it worked, but the knob was missing and the metal base was all bent up. I threw the base in the dumpster and made this wood base for it. I put some gussets for support and casters on it . I did a half lap joint for the base on the miter saw and tapped the plywood and screwed the casters right into the wood
I also made a new knob out of walnut so it can be easily switched to the 3 speeds. I was told that Patton was a good quality fan and this one is all metal. This was good timing because my old box fan I used in the barn smoked and quit last fall.
This high velocity fan will move the fan along the floor when it is on high speed.
It is finished with shellac.
