I can't even tell where the break is.

I would do a thin coat of JB Weld on the edges of the break and carefully see to it that no JB WEld is showing on the top of the base. Then I would either put a larger blob of JB weld on the base and some sort of a "stabilizer", likely a carefully shaped piece of sheet steel, that spans the break by an inch or so on both sides. Unfortunately the integrity will never quite be the same but it will be close.

I just used the same method to revive a beautifully original Westinghouse Sidewinder whos seller packed the fan with some peanuts and it came to me with the bottom blade in 5 pieces.
