  • Patent number: 3963382
    Abstract: A portable air circulating fan, especially a high velocity fan in which a rotary air impeller is mounted on the shaft of an electric motor while a guard is provided which encloses the impeller and may enclose part or all of the motor, and which guard is formed into separable forward and rearward sections. The electric motor for the fan is supported on one of the guard sections near the center, especially the rearward guard section, while a support frame is provided for the fan having a base portion and a pair of spaced upstanding legs which are connected to the sides of the guard, and about which points of connection the fan is tiltable. Advantageously, the legs are also connected to the rearward guard section but may, alternatively, be connected to the forward guard section. In this manner the rotating air impeller is guarded at all times.
