Introduction: 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.

    If you take the fan head off the pole and do some cutting (you'll see where after you get the fan head off) you can adjust the tilt angle. Ps. On some fans this is mandatory as the motor is too weak to oscillate with that kind of load

    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. :)
