Question Help ID this Australian Wooden Propeller?!

It's black, 5 ft from tip to tip with 6 bolt-holes

Stamped on one side of the Hub:

HENDERSON
"INVINCIBLE"
JULY 1937

on the other side

D. 5"-0'
P. 3"-0'.
NO. 7-76

There are a couple of other really hard to read markings on one side - possibly Henderson again and maybe "Reg. NSW" (New South Wales) - there are a few rubbings we've taken in the photos.

Thanks so much!

Invincible is the name of a British Battleship and possibly a RAN battleship. You might be able to Google a history of RN ship Invincible 1937 and similarly RAN ship Invincible 1937.

With kind regards,

Bob

Bob, have you ever seen the name of a ship stamped on the hub of an aircraft propeller?

Dave, not recently, but they do occur here in the UK, usually stamped on a hub as a memento.

I have been browsing through my photographs of decals and came across one which indicates that an Invincible Propeller was made by:
C Adams & Son of Mascot NSW and sold as an Invincible Propeller.


The prop has a brass data plate on which is stamped;

Warner SS 165
Drg No A/42/2
GA & Son No 6748
DEC 1956

Note that the initial of the maker is stamped as both C and G.

With kind regards,

Bob

Thumbs up Thanks!

Many thanks Bob, that’s given us some great clues to solve this puzzle! We’ll keep digging and if we come up with anything definite will be sure to report back with findings.

Thanks so much and happy new year! Sometimes the internet is just amazing

Default Heath Parasol

Invincible was a NSW based propellor maker. Henderson is a small engine used in a 20-30’s kitplane, the ‘ Heath Parasol’.
