Chuck, as an alternative to that approach, you could either make a blueprint of the fan collet or send it my way so I can do so. Then I would be happy to pass it on to the fellow in need. I could make a few up in my spare time and send them back to you or on to whoever needed them. I was a machinist and toolmaker for a couple decades before I ruptured a disc in my back. Now I just make things for fun - can't stand at the machines all day anymore.

This issue is caused by not reading the manual, and
incorrectly assuming how the fan is constructed. The
slotted screw is not ever supposed to be turned. The
slot is there to allow you to turn the nut without
putting any torque on the screw.
The correct way to remove the fan is to put a screwdriver
in the slot. Holding the screwdriver firm, and using a
wrench, loosen the nut. Remove the screwdriver, and turn
the nut by finger until it is flush with the top of the
screw slot. Finally, tap the nut a couple of times...
lightly... until the screw goes into the FAN hub a little
bit. The internal collet (the broken thingy) will have
released, and the fan will come off easily.
Send me your address, and I will send you my absolutly last
Tom Jobe collet. I was saving it for my own use, but you
need it more than I do.

I got hold of a Tek 2465 (the one with the Siemens motor), but theinside
fan is cracked.place
I could get epoxy and glue it back (suggestion appreciated), but this
fastener piece is in 4-5 small pieces. Could somebody here suggest a
where I could order one of these?
