Re: upgrade 4 blade to 7 blade fan

When I called Blaufergnugen a few weeks back to order a new fan, they
(without additional comment) sent me one with 7 blades. Patient is an 87
PN printed on box: 443 959 455N
I believe the 4 blade one I took out had the same PN apart from suffix- it
was, I think, an "E"
Sorry I don't have the number for the blade alone. I needed the fan motor so
badly shrapnel was leaking out of the bearings.
