I found a local welder comfortable working on cast iron and the results are very good.  He cut a V groove along the crack and used silicon bronze rod to fill it.  I’m still working on refining things with a Dremel but feeling very positive that I will be able to keep the fan all original.  I did not plan to repaint everything and need to decide how to cover the repair to best match the rest of the finish.   Advice welcome.
