It seemed like everybody and his brother were at Hal Lincoln's house on July 7, 1975. Perhaps it was his magnetic personality or more than likely it was because he was one of the few people in Juneau, Alaska that owned a fan. That torrid day back in '75 was when the normally temperate Juneau reached its all time record high of 90 degrees and the natives were dropping like flies. Hal remembered that he had an old Bersted Zero electric fan stashed away in the attic. A relic from the days back when he lived down in the lower 48. So he decided to call up his friends and invite them over for ice tea and a cool breeze. Well word got around town and before long, friends of friends and friends of them were among the lemmings who called themselves fans of Hal's fan.

Here's a wonderful working 1950's Zero Model 1250R electric desktop fan ready to help you keep your cool during the summer months--vintage style. This fan was made by Bersted Mfg. Co. in Canada. It is a well made, heavy metal fan is finished in light teal color with steel cage and shiny aluminum fan blades. It has a cool "ZERO" logo in the center of the fan cage. It stands approx 11" high and the fan cage is 9" in diameter. This unit does not oscillate and it does not have a switch, you simply plug it in to operate. It can sit on a flat surface or be mounted to a wall. The electrical cord is 4" long.

We tested this unit out and it works great but it is a little noisier than modern fans. The metal finish has some nicks to the paint and some light stains. The fan cage is in good shape with just a light bit of surface rust in a few spots. The electrical cord is free of cracks or frays but as with all electrical appliances of this age, use at your own risk.
