I've bought a few fans on eBay and always asked and explained how to pack it. Some think they know better and some just don't care once they have your money. So, there's always a percentage that are NOT going to pack it properly no matter what you say and always a percentage that might get damaged. I've got stories to raise the hair on the back of your neck.

I agree with Randy about brazing it, if done correctly it'll be permanent and will never show once it's restored. Now if you want a replacement base because your a stickler for authenticity that's okay too but, you may have to wait to find one.
I cant see it cost too much to repair it and if by chance you find another, you can always replace it then. Just my 3 cents.
