Default T6296 boss on eBay UK

Thank you very much for the tip. As suggested, I was able to find it by searching an eBay UK page. It is a very nice example of a T.6296 hub, but the 395 price tag is a problem! I will post some photos, and I will post a link to the listing if anyone is interested. The diameter and pitch figures stamped on this boss are different to those stamped on other T.6296 bosses I have seen. The diameter, at 2971mm is only 1mm more than the 2970 I observed stamped on another boss, but the 3170mm pitch is 130mm more than the 3040 I observed on the other boss. Does anyone know what the standard pitch and diameter are for a T.6296? Although it does not make a lot of difference to the shapes of each profile and the propeller overall, these are differences I would like to investigate. Presently I am constructing these T.6296 patterns with a view to manufacturing static reproduction propellers, but in the future I plan to build T.6296 and other propeller types for flying reproduction aircraft, if there is a market for them. Such a difference in the pitch in particular will become an issue for a propeller constructed for flight.
