Introduction: Converting a Pedestal Fan to Wall Mount.

Picture of Converting a Pedestal Fan to Wall Mount.

Here is a really cheap pedestal fan I converted to wall mount.

Step 1: Removing the Fan.

Easy really. Remove a screw and pop the fan assembly off.

Step 2: Removing the Base.

4 screws to remove and the shaft is off the base!

Step 3: Cutting the Shaft.

Hacksaw time folks! I reduced the length of the shaft to allow for wall mounting.

Step 4: Mounting the Shaft to the Wall.

I drilled holes and installed rawl plugs and screwed the shaft onto its new position. My hammer drill and masonry bits were instrumental in this step.

Step 5: Wall Switch.

This allows the fan to be turned on or off easily.

Step 6: Putting in the Fan Assembly.

The assembly slid onto the horizontally mounted shaft. I wired the supply in the ceiling.

Step 7: Completion!

Now I have a wall mounted fan that helps keep cool this tiny room I tend to spend some time in.

Wish I had done this for my place in Bangkok, that apartment got so hot in the summer!

Just for a year after college, I was teaching EFL. I don't think I was ready for the humidity of the subtropics. XD It was fun though, met a lot of awesome people. :)
