Identifying a Sensenich Propeller
 
My Grandfather left my 10 yr old son this propeller that he brought back from the Philippines. He had believed it was made before WWI. My son and I would love to know as much info. as possible, like what kind of plane it was used on, etc. The model # 43K10107, Serial No. AF43A6869, there is a patent stamped on it and also the Sensenich Bros. Lititz, PA with wings logo on both ends. There is metal on the ends although it looks like someone may have cut the tips off (maybe for safety reasons when transporting?) Thank you.

Hi,
You have an old post about your propeller in the same forum : http://woodenpropeller.com/forumvB/showthread.php?t=441 (look at the four last posts).

Regards,
PM

Well, Sensenich didn't exist until 1932, and the "43K" prefix in the serial number indicates a 1943 military contract, so that eliminates the "before WW1" possibility.

Thank you, for that info. I saw postings that were listed in 2007 regarding the a similar Sensenich propeller but a different model number. Would the planes that were listed be the same that our propeller was used on?

As per http://www.modernwoodenpropellers.co...h_military.htm that military contract number translates to Sensenich design numbers 72C-42 or 72C-44 which you can look up at http://www.modernwoodenpropellers.com/sensenich.htm for actual usage.
