I blew out the back of the head case of my 1907 16 inch pancake. I was replacing the bearings. The front one came out with two easy taps but the rear one would not budge, not even a little. One punch too many with the center punch did it. So here are my questions. Can the three pieces be repaired so that the fan is strong enough to run and if so, who might be able to do it. The bearing probably needs to be drilled out. If that isn't an option, I will need to purchase another case from someone in the club. Suggestions are welcome as to who to contact for both options. Well this was an unfortunate learning experience for me (ARGHHHH)

Thanks Richard but the broken piece is the larger part of the case not the cover and this is a 16 inch pancake not a 12 inch pancake. I should have been more specific.

I don't think that's the right part, you need the later '07-'08, unless I'm mistaken.

Thanks Richard. Funny, it looked like the right part. I'll email Chad and change the order to this one.

Just for fun, I took a stab at repairing the broken case with some JB Weld. The parts went back together pretty easily though it was a VERY tight fit requiring some selective sanding. I won't be using this case though, since I bought the replacement from Chad Baker but I was impressed at how strong the repair was. I used a titanium bit to take the burr off of the bearing (from whacking it). So here's my offer:  Anyone can have this case that wants it for the cost of shipping. PM me.
