   I know my chances of finding an original are basically nada. Anyone knowing someone that does/has done reproductions?

Dave Tetie (spelled wrong I'm sure) made them once upon a time.   I'd order one too if anyone would make them.

My 1/12 HP Crocker Wheeler had this fan on it when I bought it.   Not sure who made it but the hub style I was told was for or similar to a 1/6 HP C-W






I had Alan Willms make this fan for me but I don't think he is making them anymore.






This is the only original blade I have seen.

I think the CW Blade with fat fingers was for a 1/6 or 1/8 HP motors. All three motors took different hubs.

Speaking of hubs, here's one for the record.  16" CW blade.  3 rivets vs. 2 on Steve's fan.

That's a beautiful blade. Never seen a hub stretch half the span of the blade. Interesting how they shaved the wing for the set screw. Surprised it's the 12 and 730 wings are shaved. Figured they would of did 12 and 6. Thanks for sharing
