It isn't a fan, per sei, but rather a squirrel cage blower.

Why reinvent the wheel? I could make this collet with a drill
press, slitting saw, and a file.

Looking at it from another perspective: Are there currently available fans that would fit right into the drive shaft of the Siemens motor?

Chuck, the 6-32 thread won't be any stronger in brass than in aluminum - in fact most likely weaker. Two benefits to brass as I see it are easier machining and less likely to corrode and seize the thread - the likely culprit if aluminum ones are breaking. What material are they screwed into?
