This is one of the fans I picked up a few weekends ago. Runs good and started the resto. This fan has a cone on the end of the fan. Not sure if it comes off or is it welded onto the fan blade? Blade does not come off and it would be easy to use a gear puller but can not with this cone on. Thanks.

That looks like a threaded hole for a set screw, in the "nose cone".
I would start with penetrating oil and verify that there is no set screw in the hole, and remove it if there is.
Then look into the hole and see if the motor shaft has a flat, or if it may be threaded.
Use more penetrating oil, and heat if needed, to attempt to begin to free the cone from the shaft.

I think the cone is intragal to the blade. I held the spindle with a set of needle nose and moved the blade back and forth and worked it off.
