Hey everyone! It's been a while since I presented one of my models here, but I believe this one should get your attention, as it's not something that you build everyday. It's my first life-size model, a fully functional electric fan. It features an on-off switch, 2 buttons for choosing the speed (low and high) and a switch for the oscillating motion. It uses an L motor placed in the base that drives a 2-speed high-torque gearbox, and an old 9V motor (71427) placed in the fan head, for the lateral movement. It's powered by a large BB, found in the base (naturally). It's quite heavy (around 2 Kg), but sturdy and reliable, so it can be used as a real fan (into high speed), as long as you don't mind replacing batteries too often :) But enough talk, check out the photos and video below.

I am trying to replicate the fan that is in the video at this link, it seems that the things that look the easiest to do, can be the trickiest. Here is a still shot. It doesn't seem that hard to make, but with a lot going on, I seem to be missing something and cannot get it to function properly. wondering if anyone could do a parts list, minus the fan blades of course, of what they see, assembly seems to be straight forward, but again, maybe I am missing something. any comments and ideas are welcome, improvements, other versions, concepts are appreciated. thanks to any and all that provide assistance in any way Bobby
