    Thumbs up New acquisition - Robbins & Myers Double Diamond

    I just acquired this fan locally from a fellow fan collector. The motor is all serviced (disassembled, bearings / wicking / shaft / gearbox cleaned and re lubricated).

    I didn't mention it in the video, but this fan is a 50 cycle model. It works fine on 60 cycle, motor doesn't heat up or anything. This fan has a new capacitor and the electrics check out fine. I do wonder if this fan would run differently on 50 cycle.current. The friend I got this from has the same fan that runs on 60 cycle. His fan has a less slow lower speed. The only real difference between the two are the ohm readings on the speed coils.


    Anyway here's a quick video. Please Like and Subscribe if you have a YouTube account!
