I have a _very_
old single speed ceiling fan which I'd like to install
on the back porch (known good, and working fine), on an existing normal
'light' circuit (wall switched). the fan is single speed, six bladed, 32
inch diameter, Emerson, (amp rating unknown and not on the ID plate).
there is a partial 'light kit' installed (apparently original vintage),
consisting of a fancy solid brass lower 'small juice can' shaped lower
projection, and there is a 'thru wire' ability (empty OD-threaded tube)
from top of fan all the way to extreme bottom of fan. I'd like to hook
up some lower lights to the fan (can figure the mechanical details' on
that myself). however, I'd also like to install, if such is possible, a
pull-chain type switch on the fan, at bottom, that has <hopefully> four
positions: lights only on, lights and fan on, fan on only, and "all off".
question: do such four-position pull chain switches exist? I realize I
could pull add'l wires thru the wall and run an add'l circuit to
accomplish this, but I'd rather not...of course, I'm open to 'alternate
ideas' to accomplish the feat :-)
thanks for tips , ideas and clues :-)
to reply, please remove the "weird stuff" from my email address. thanks.
