Vornado Fan Company and Resto

I have always been drawn to these fans. The design is soo different from anything that was produced. A lot of the fans have an aircraft cowling design. This is because the designer Ralph K. Odor was originally designing an aircraft when he branched off to design fans. I restored the one below and love using it on those hot days.

Restoration!

This one is similar to the condition of the one I restored.

I restored this fan in Coca-Cola colors

I love how it pivots in place to adjust the air flow.

Here is the back fully detailed. I had to wire in a new cord as well.

I came across a “link” that shows you how to convert these fans into lights. This is soo cool but only do it to a non-working one. It would be a shame to take one of these out of service.

Check the link out, this is really cool!

Here are some great Vornado fans that I found on-line. I would love to own all of them. I just love the style and the functionality and how they both came together. If you see one of these make sure to snag it.

      Thanks Nelly,
      I am happy with the way it turned out too. I would love to go to Australia. My step father lived there for a while because his mother was from there. Visiting Australia is on my “bucket list”.

      I love that black table one too. I thought that cardboard cutout of the she-astronaut was so racy for the time period and yes she is easy on the eyes…..beam me up Scotty!

    My research indicates that after A.O Sutton Corp. went bankrupt a New Jersey Company called Two Guys bought the Vornado name for use as the name of Two Guys departments store’s house brand. I have seen the Vornado name on a steam Iron (made by Proctor SIlex), a couple of blenders, a couple of electric hand mixers, transistor radios, a table top oven/broiler, and even Xmas tree lights. Later on Two Guys real estate arm even became known as Vornado Reality
