I have a old Enco 7x10 lathe.
Cheap chinese one.
The fan in the motor is all broken. Motor is fine.
Anyone know of a replacement fan????
Has anyone replaced the motor with something else????

How expensive are the motors ? have you checked ebay ? I think you probably would be better off buying the whole motor and fan together.

maybe you could repurpose a computer fan and a short duct to direct airflow

I'd hate to replace the motor with something that will fail the same way.
The cheapest motor I've found is around $100.
Computer fan motor sounds like a good idea.
