I agree with you - the molded plastic blades are thicker in the middle than on the edges as well, but the blade is simply rounded instead of being shaped like this. The fiberglass blades also look incredibly tacky if installed upside down as seems to be the case of a lot of the fans featuring them that get pictured.
Makes sense . . . I always thought it affected airflow as well, as the fiberglass blades appear to move more air than plastic. Might be true, might be my imagination. It's all conjecture unless we can back it up with data.
My uncle had the same fan, but with 6 blades and 4 speeds. This particular one is 3 pointed blades and 2 speeds. It's a window/floor fan. It folds open and closes like a book. Cool fan. I have part of my uncle's original box. Edit: hey look! It's me!
I don't know, it has a complete kitchen, and there's lockers upstairs. No clue. I really liked the window fan. It was what got me started in liking fans. My aunt used to let me play with my uncle's when she babysitted me. I was just like 1 or 2. It has a really sentimental value to me.

Oh OK I did not know that Ge vents have a ornate sideband.
Yeah these ARE Hampton bay Huntington II. They appear to have a great bunch of them. I looks like they have too wide blades and the brackets are long. Well this is at you Buddhist temple? Because we see a golden Buddha statue. Are these peoples on the floor praying/meditating or eating/drinking tea?
I like the Carroways but I toughed that they cammed with pointed blades. The motor shape reminds me of a Banvil Gold Line 36'' or Evergos. Are they variable speed or 3-speed ?

Yeah, I like the Carroways...exactly how many were there? I knew that I had seen said Carroway in white before in my childhood and not a day henceforth. It is also one of my most sought-after fans for my collection.
Ben, your pics prove that they do exist in white.
BTW, The Evergo is pretty sweet too. I assume it was a product of K-Mart back in the day.
