Sunday was a FanTastic Day

Sunday was a FanTastic Day because I picked up a 2 Speed 7″ Personal Soft Blade Table Top Fan from Hogg Home Hardware on Sherbrooke St. W. in Westmount, Quebec.

This fan is fantastic. ­čÖé

I have been living out of 2 suitcases since returning from Beijing, China to Toronto, Ontario at the end of 2012, and I have been moving around, so every time I change cities I pickup another fan or two from Home Hardware. No room in my bags for fans no matter how small they are.

I like to have constant air circulation.

I love the Basic / Chinook fan because it is whisper quiet and moves a lot of air. It has two speeds.

Chinook Fan Model 707CHWBX

The fan is manufactured by Caframo a Canadian under the brand name Chinook and available from many outlets including Amazon.com, Walmart, and so forth. There are some very high prices on amazon for this product from various resellers.

It is sold through Home Hardware as the 2 Speed 7″ Personal Soft Blade Table Top Fan – Item #3828-157 for $CAN39.99.


Caframo is a manufacturing company located in the beautiful Georgian Bluffs, Ontario, Canada on the shore of Georgian Bay.

They have been in business since 1955. Caframo designs, develops and manufactures high quality fans, heaters, laboratory stirrers and accessories to a wide range of North American and International markets.

I really like this product manufactured in Canada by a Canadian company.

If you are looking for a small, quiet, durable desktop fan the Basic / Chinook may be just perfect for you.
