I have a few 6v Winchargers, one original tower, a voltage regulator,  props, 1 Parris Dunn Philco Wind Generator with freshly rebuilt gen for it. ($350.00 to have rebuilt).
I'm selling my entire collection.

Asking 1000 for all.  The props were hard to find and I paid up to get them

Call or email me for more info as well as pictures

Mike thatís a beautiful machine youíve got there!  Yes, Iíve been to the Parris Dunn website. They have the manual there for download. Iíll be looking for parts in the coming months. Shouldnít be too awful hard to find what I need.

Here's a later Parris-Dunn, NOS found in New Mexico a few months ago.  I'll be donating it to the AWPC in Lubbock in a few weeks.  It has many of the same parts as yours....similar but different.

That's a great find and from what I can tell it appears to be in pretty good shape.  Its an early Parris-Dunn, probably 6V, ca, 1935.  The fact that you can read the tail, you have the tower and the coaxial collector pipe is pretty amazing.  Parris Dunn put a lot of different radio brands and hardware store names on their tails vanes.  Silvertone, as you know was the radio brand sold by Sears.  Yes, you're missing the generator and prop but they're not impossible to find.  I don't have any extra parts nor do I have the manual for that specific model.  I know there are a few pics of this model already on the Wincharger website under the photos webpage.  There's also a Parris-Dunn website with a few pics but last time I visited there was a lot of pop up windows with viruses ready to attach your computer so be careful.

Today a coworker of mine gave me an old Parris Dunn tower and part of the chassis.  He works on ranches part time and picked up this old wind machine out of a ranch trash pile.  The machine has no generator or blade.  The tail has "Silvertone" on it, just barely readable.  I'd appreciate any help identifying this thing exactly so I'll know what I'm looking for to complete and restore it.  Thanks so much!
