I have a Westmoore propeller
it is marked:
sc5407
no. 222
on the left and:
X5
LX5
on the right of the hub. By reading some of the other posts, i think it was for a Curtiss, but the pictures i have seen show the numbers marked vertically and they are horizontally on mine. It measures 8ft 5in in length and the hub measures 7 1/2 inches across and the bore measures 1 3/8 inches. It has 8 bolts holding a metal plate over the hub. How long were these manufactured? and is the company still in business? I am really curious about this prop. it has been in my family since i was a kid and i have always been curious of its history.

here are some pics..
