I am new to this this forum and am needing help identifying a propeller and help trying to duplicate it for a restoration project I am involved with. I know that the propeller was manufactured by Hamilton (evidenced by the picture) and that the engine that turned it was a Wright J5 (220hp). I have overhauled and test ran the engine but need help with the propeller. I need any information that is available for this propeller. Is there anyone that currently builds these? Thanks to all in advance for any help.

Hamilton didn't leave much record of model numbers, and they made props for a relatively short time before merging with Standard Steel, so they have been hard to identify even with stamped information.

You might check with Chad Wille at St. Croix Aircraft (http://stcroix.50webs.com/). He can probably make one, but I don't know if he has the information you need about the drawing (blueprint) used for one.
