Motor fan repair

This was my first attempt at aluminum MIG welding. 4 vanes were damaged (missing) on the fan of the mill motor. The caused vibration from the imbalance. New vanes were cut from a bandsaw and welded. I thought I needed to dynamically balance it, but it ran so smoothly that I decided to skip that.
