Here is my Patton high velocity 18" U2-1887. I've wanted one of these style fans for many years, finally picked this one up off eBay. Its one of, if not the most powerful, fan I own! Unfortunately there is some paint on the blades that shouldn't be there, and the feet I replaced, but otherwise its in decent condition.

A Patton with a one piece blade? That's unusual and seemingly cheap for a Patton... Wonder why they did that.
Its off-balance too, definitely one of the later, cheaper models. Still had a good motor though. I've heard bad things about those blades, such as they can separate from where they attach to the shaft and things of that nature. Had I know that before I bought it, I probably would have waited for another one to come up which was older.
