Western Electric 16 Bi-Polar Electric Desk Fan Western Electric 16" Bi-Polar Electric Desk Fan  This was restored well enough to look at when on a shelf on display. Restored meaning poorly repainted.   If you want it to run, and look really good it needs attention / further restoration.  The cage has several breaks loose joints.  There is no switch in the base.  It is wired direct drive, and I did not bother plugging it in.  It is being sold as is - as for restoration.

Hydraulic Ram Water PumpsCollection of Hydraulic Ram Water Pumps   You can stop looking for one, I got them all!  The back row are mostly complete but may need some restoration, mostly to the valves.  In front, on the left is a marriage of top and bottom that are not a good fit. The small one in the middle has no valve, and on the right is a hard to find Rife that needs its foot welded back on and has no valve system.  Out in front are some misc. valves and parts to help you along with the project.  Names include, Rife, Goulds, Billabong, Mansfield, Douglas, Humphries, and a few unmarked as far as I can see.  The price for all is around 100.00 each give or take.  I will break individual ones out of the mix for 350.00 each.

For the curious, as most who see them have no idea what they are looking at, Hydraulic Ram Pumps are a means to move water uphill for free.  You just need a water source with fall, like a creek, river, or the like.   In a water source with fall, you get one of these set up in, or next to that source, prime it, pressurize it, and then sit back and listen to it go click - clack as it almost magically pumps water uphill with no motors, electricity or other power needed.  I do not remember all the details, but it is something like for every foot of fall you get 10' of lift, and for every 10 gallons that pass through, one gallon ends up at the top of the hill where the sun is.

Franklin Bipolar Electric MotorSmall Franklin Bipolar Electric Motor This small Franklin toy size battery powered electric motor runs.  It is built on the same frame and principle as the small toy Bipolar Edison Motor one sees from time to time.  It have been suggested that they were sold or given away at one of the expos or fairs around the country that took place after the introduction by Edison of his light bulbs and full size motors / dynamos.  You actually see more of the Edison branded motor than you do the Franklin.  This tiny motor stands just under 4" tall and has a great look with its double column exposed windings.   It will display nicely and will be a nice addition to the antique electric,  motor, Americana,  or other collection.
