Default Furnace blower fan...any good?

So I have this blower fan I got from my husband's dad who puts in and takes out furnaces. He pulled out the blower fan in the furnace because it still runs well. I have calculated for my work space with hood that I need about 727 cfms before the roughly .3 static pressure, so theoretically I want about 800 cfms.

I have been trying to compare this furnace blower with what is available on the market to see if it has comparable cfms, but I can't quite find the same exact components, although semi similar ones have between 1500 & 2700 cfms. Below is listed exactly what my furnace blower has. If you have any idea if this will be at least 800 cfms, please let me know.

-Marathon Electric Motor/Furnace blower
-1/4 HP
-1725 RPM
-10 inch inlet (area that sucks out)
-115 volt
-PH:1 CY:80
-F.Lamp: 4.6

Yes, I have checked the Marathon website and looked at what they have, but all it has are the motors, not the whole furnace assembly blower, so it was no help.
