Hello,

could I ask you for some information, photos or measures of propeller from Halberstadt CL.IV? What manufacturer used to make props for this type? Wolff and Axial? And concerning the material, was it only ash or ash mixed with some dark wood?

Thank you very much.

I probably should write, that the aircraft is powered by Mercedes D.III. Would that help to tell which airscrew types were used on it and what diamater?

Thank you!

There might be some info in Bob Gardner's books, but I'm not at home to check right now.

The previous (electronic) edition of Bob Gardner's book had a table with different German propellers data. There is only one propeller for Halberstadt CL IV made by Niendorf (no data concerning diameter or pitch) for Mercedes 160 PS. That propeller had 7 laminations of walnut and spruce? (question mark by B. Gardner).
