View Full Version : Prop identification

This l'il bit o' helical heaven is 37" tip to tip, 1.5" thick and is made of 11 plies of mahogany and a lighter hardwood, possibly maple. There is a 1/4" diameter center hole. There are no letter/number markings of any kind, nor are there any decals. The overall condition is excellent.

I'd like to know this gem's origin and value. Thanks, all you prop mavens.

I think that's too short for an aircraft prop. 1/4"inch center hole is too small too. Can you post pictures? Maybe it's a generator prop.

Thanks for the zippy reply. Except for a difference in length, my prop appears identical in material and scimitar design to a recently completed eBay auction

If the above reference seems presumptuous, I'll certainly understand if your sleuthing needs to remain within the forum confines.

It looks like a reproduction model and not an actual aircraft propeller. The final bid price on the one on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=280886510178&nma=true&rt=nc&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sop %3D3%26_trkparms%3D72%25253A570%25257C66%25253A2%2 5257C65%25253A12%25257C39%25253A1%26_sacat%3D0%26_ nkw%3D280886510178%26_sc%3D1%26_rdc%3D1&si=U6y1LhKvBjmZPFnlpI9x1wF6lFs%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc) of $36 is about right, I think.
