I don't think much is known about that Hunter clone of a GE AOU.   It's very close in looks but the details may differ quite a bit.  The motor and loop handle and base are made of die cast metal (pot metal?).   I don't know the years it was made or anything else about it.  With GE aluminum blades started in 1930 I think.

If the motor shaft diameter is the same then the GE blade should work.Have you tried a magnet on the fan motor/base/loop handle to see if it sticks?   I have on a 12" model and the whole thing was non-magnetic if I remember right.  The whitish color on the loop handle and some other parts are what makes me think pot metal.  If cast iron I don't think the white would be there.

That's interesting.   I'd love to see the fan and examine it myself.   Never have seen a 16" version, maybe they used some different metals.  Thanks for checking Jeff.
