I saw the modern equlivant at ACE a while back. It was 2 speed but felt cheap and airflow was super weak. It's oscillator was also busted amusingly

Such a neat fan! I really hope you can get that oscillator system fixed!

Well isn't that something... others commenting here are correct, they still make this... but the controls are on the front on the new version, instead of on the top like the older one. http://www.seabreeze.ca/fans/CoolSweep_/coolsweep_.html Take a look here at the history of the company: http://www.seabreeze.ca/about/about.html They have a parts section on the web site. Maybe you can still get parts for the old version. I remember SeaBreeze wood case portable record players with vacuum tube amplifiers were another common item as a child's record player in the 1970s. They mention in the company history about starting out making phonograph motors.

Hey Harley! If I find another one of these over here, I will send it to you for parts. I'm not sure what was supposed to be there, since this fan has been like this ever since I had it; the oscillating vanes never worked, but I thought something was just slipping and not gone altogether.. These fans were pretty common in the 1970s and 1980s here (I remember being in homes of several families with fans like this as a kid), so I will watch for one of these to turn up in a thrift store.

Seabreeze is a really interesting company. One or two of the fans they still make have been in production for 40 years! And, aside from the content itself, their website is exactly the same as it was 20 years ago!

That blade design kinda reminds me of the Windy pedestal fan i made a video of several months ago..

I've seen some Seabreeze fans on eBay, they're not common.

Very cool vintage fan

The motor is in front of the fan. I have never seen that. I guess a good way to cool the motor.

lots of reversible fans are like that to keep the motor dry when the fan is in a window

Wow, never seen one of these before. Very interesting design.

They are still made in canada. Including space heater.

Are they? Is SeaBreeze still around? I thought everything was made in China now. Maybe Harley can get the part which is missing?
