Beat me to it. Try an 1891 Argentine Mauser with the sword they used for a bayonet and a low ceiling fan. And, my wife said, "Be carful dear". Yeah, thank you sweety.

Sames goes with wall scratches from leaning all your rifles against the wall and the front sight scratching the wall.
We rifle collectors should find the Indian name equivalent to "the one that scratches the wall" like "dances with wolves" from the movie.

Unfortunately, you can't buy individual ceiling fan blades. I ended up removing the whole fan fixture since it wasn't really needed, anyway.

So does Lowes but they want a pint of blood and your first born child for them. I was remodeling and carried a door into one of mine. Now my fan has only two blades and considering the cost of blades I think it's doing JUST FINE. :D

As simple as most of these are made if the hardware is still available you could cut a set from 1/4" plywood or fiberboard.
If you can't match the original you could make a complete set.
