    Here is a c.1910 Diehl Electric Manufacturing Co. 12″, 32V DC electric fan I recently finished with Eastwood products. This fan was originally installed in a Pullman coach, and is here mounted on an early ornate trunnion base.

    I used Hot Coat “mirror black” powder on the iron and steel parts, and used Eastood’s metallic gold sign paint (applied using a Buegler striping tool) to reproduce the original style pinstriping. Nikolas laccquer seals the polished brass.

    The mirror black powder very closely replicates the durable, glossy japan finish originally applied to early electric fans (and most other early technical devices). Thanks Eastwood!
