Great service and productSunday, February 27, 2011
If this lasts as long as the original, I won't have to buy another, I'll be dead.
Used PN, was like original, only not quite as heavily made. Price- with shipping, was 2/3 of what I could buy one for locally, if they'd had one. They would have had to order one and charge extra for shipping
Original had a reinforcing collar around pressure point, unsure if this will cause problems, or was just overbuilt to start with.

Amazing one can find this replacement fan blade for a custom range hood, as the manufacturer (Broan) only sell then entire fan assembly. But here it was at less than $1 each plus reasonable S&H. I bought 3 since the S&H was the same. Only problem was that although the blade has the exact same serial number as the original it has a different blade angle (12° instead of 22°) and a flat side to fit on a notched shaft, not a round one like the original. So I had to drill out the shaft hole to get it to fit. No big neal and I am just thankful to be able to find this obscure item.
That I could find it at all
Mr Fan Man Blows Away Built-In ObsolescenceMonday, September 27, 2010
Drillspot: Well-organized site with consistently good prices and excellent service. For the detail people: Order placed 11PM Wednesday arrived via $6 UPS Ground Friday Noon. Two molded plastic fan propellers at 53¢ each = WAY affordable replacement of Holmes window fan propellers (dried out plastic --> brittle / broken blades), that Holmes 'service' hotline reports they "don't make anymore" (ever?). Instead Holmes rep tried to sell me a new fan with half the features of my trusty old HAWF-2085T. Had to modify the Thorgren 6.625" propellers with push-on hubs (#7 drill, then 1/4-20 tap, trim the excess hub height to clear the rear grills), but should be good to go for a second decade of use. Near the base of a single blade on one of two new propellers is the ghost of a stress fracture (arrived via UPS that way) I hope will not evolve to full-blown crack anytime soon.
Available. Affordable. Lightweight. Not much noisier than the original blade design. Extends the life of the original window fan, whose propellers had dried, cracked, and broke off with the slightest touch.
Might make the molded plastic construction of slightly heavier weight, or different composition, so as to reduce risk of cracking at stress points, whether new, or over time, when many plastics become less flexible and more brittle.
