I have no doubt that members here do a fantastic job of repairing broken cast iron, however I disagree going the brazing route strictly because that original japanning is BEAUTIFUL.

Another possible method of repair is to repair is using the no-heat JB Weld Stick method and then bold the unit to a wooden base with support from the good interior section of the fan. If the rest of the fan matches the base then it would clean up to look like new. If the repair breaks sometime in the future, THEN have it brazed. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

That said, its not my fan, do what you want and enjoy it! :)
