Default Bingo machine with missing blower

Just had a look at repairing a bingo machine, old style unit that should have a blower motor. Sadly the blower and motor are missing, anyone know where I can buy a replacement.

Some images of the space it occupied with some measurements would be helpful.

Perhaps a centrifugal fan intended for a gas boiler could be adapted?

I would go for a scrap bagless vacuum cleaner. There are plenty with broken NLA plastic parts with plenty of life left in the motors.
Pretty well all of them will run on AC or DC so can be slowed down to a little more than it takes to lift the balls with many options for speed control.

Hot-air gun with the element removed or disconnected?

If its a Snail type centrifugal fan, plenty of them, big and small used in Hot counters and other food service equipment.

Thanks for the suggestion, managed to get a snail type fan intended for ventilation that fits and works well.
