This is a vintage fan on a vintage survey Tri -Pod . I first turned a plate like round that accepted the fan base and bolted it down to the brass top plate . I proceeded by drilling thru the brass fitting on top for a electric wire then routed a small groove to hid the cord down to the bottom . I envisioned a bi plane so I glued the two rod’s together and drilled 1/4 angled hole for the dowels in the bottom rod. I then fashioned all the brass including small wheels on bottom wing and polished all brass. The tri -pod stand was too high with the fan and wings so I cut 6 ’’ off the bottom giving me the metal points to use one for the tail. I cut a small groove to hold a machinist folding ruler and screwed to the tail section. I went to a show this weekend and this one was sold right off the bat. I didn’t even have closure on it. I really like this design and will make more with stand. All This and Heaven too.
