I have a Polar Cub Type G 110v fan made in New Haven, Conn. July 5, 1921 it states other pat. pending. The plug is no longer with the cord but I did use it many years ago, so did my father. No damage except some of the black paint is worn off in some places on the cage surrounding the blades. The cord is still attached. I would like to sell it if you can connect me with a potential buyer. I have not cleaned it, should I? Stewart Evans (email@example.com).
I recently acquired a vintage Erector set for which I can find no information. I emailed “Doc” at Girders & Gears. I also attached a couple of photos of the set. I would have included them with this message, but could find no way to do so. Doc responded that he didn’t recognize the set. I am hoping that you can offer some help. The set comes packaged in a metal blue and white tool box type case. The builder guide, which I “believe” goes with this set has a date of 1975. If you would like to see some photos I would be glad to send them if you would provide a means of doing so. Thank you for any help. Ted Leonard (Ted@PaysonRealtor.com).
Hello, I was hoping to use Erector sets to make a neat AF layout. I had some personal issues and now this won’t be happening. I’m wandering now how to sell the sets and items, or maybe exchange the sets for one good 10/12 set for my grandson. Any ideas on how to do that? I’m going to look through your site, maybe I can get other ideas. Thanks for any info. Tim Schoenenberger, central Ohio (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am restoring number 8 1/2 Erector set. I need a reproduction label for inside of the lid, and the round label for outside of the lid. Do you know anyone who sells these reproductions? Thanks, Bill (email@example.com).
I have a 1945, 9 1/2 Erector Set that is 95% complete that I want to give to my great grandson, but I am missing the instruction manual. My brother and I received the set for Christmas in 1945. Could you give any help as to where I might obtain a photo or PDF copy? Would the Library of Congress have these and how would you find out? Thanks, Robert S. Bruns (firstname.lastname@example.org).

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Ray Rosebush, a charter member of the A.C. Gilbert Heritage Society and a great friend and colleague to all of us. Ray possessed one of the Society’s most extensive collections of Erector Sets as well at a magnificent toy collection. He was a steadfast supporter of the legacy of A.C. Gilbert, and one of the nicest persons I have ever met. Read Ray’s obituary here.
