I picked this up with a couple of fans I bought. I thought it would fit my GE 1 inch but it doesn't . the inside of the arbor hole is .305 inch. My magnet does not stick to anything on the fan blade but the set screw. Untested so I don't know if its in clock and balance. But it does not look like its been bent or damaged. Asking 30 dollars plus shipping or FTF if you live near Bentonville AR.

Westinghouse. R&M had clockwise spinning blades with fingered hubs. I don't know why it doesn't have a center dome on the hub, but here are two other Westy blades 
without that. The first is 16".

My early R&Ms have CCW Westy motors & blades, hence the confusion.

Out of curiosity, do those early R&Ms have Westinghouse blades (non-fingered, domed hub, triangle rivet pattern), or did R&M make their own version of the CCW blades?

That blade at the top does not look like any Westy blade I have seen.   R&M "tanks" made by Westinghouse have a Westy blade but other early R&Ms do not use a Westy blade as far as I know.
