    Supreme Propeller!

    HI Jeff, I recently found this 84" Supreme propeller and wondered if you might be interested in a purchase. It is the mixed wood construction, 6 bolt hub W/ nut, original finish with decals (Detroit origin), nice metal edges, minor scimitar shape. I would call the condition "Good", a few dings, but a nice weathered patina.
    Thanks, Scott

If anyone has one of these props I would appreciate it if you would consider returning it to its original family. I will be glad to offer a nice payment.

    Thank you.

    Mr. Stone,

    I have a Stone propeller apparently intended for a Cont. 65 horsepower engine. Ir is labeled Stone Propeller Super-Prop made in Chicago Ill.

    I would love to learn more about it. It belonged to a dear friend who has passed. He was an avid pilot starting in the late 1930's.

    Stone propeller for sale!

    Greetings Jeff, I wrote you over a year ago with a Stone propeller that I had for sale. I've found another one that I will be posting on Ebay tonite (9:30 CT). It is a 70" two tone in excellent condition. I hope you check it out (type stone propeller in the ebay search and you should find it).
    Thanks, Scott

    I have one of your family's props in very good shape for it's age, two tone with decals. Collete mentioned she paid 975.00 for hers. Since this posting is from 2009 , I'm checking to see if you still want one before I put it on eBay. I'm an antique dealer in New Jersey.

    Hi Chris,

    You have one of the props that was made in Chicago by the Stone Propeller Company made up of my grandfather, four of his brothers and their father, Morris Stone. If you perform a google search you will find some more information about the Stone Propeller Company. I have heard through the Stone family grapevine that after some financial difficulties stemming from cancelled orders from the government the family relocated to Chicago and resumed business with what was known as mob money. A deal was reportedly struck with Piper for wooden propellers in the early to mid 40's. My grandfather, Harry S. Stone, said that Piper wanted to save some money by having the production move quicker with less hands on work. There was also some suggestion that the props might end up in the wrong hands. The Stone brothers worried about safety more than mob enforcers decided to modify the props so they would not achieve enough lift to fly. Those props were marked as "not air worthy." To avoid retribution, the brothers reportedly left town chased by the mob.

    I recently bought a two tone prop in what I would consider to be pretty good condition (original brass tips, two tone, limited damage to the finish and stickers in good condition) for $975. I have been told I probably over paid for the prop. I paid the asking price because I had been looking for a Stone prop for over 10 years without much success. If you are interested in selling yours, would you be so kind as to offer it to Jeff Stone? I know he has been looking and would be fair in any dealings with you.

    Best,
    Colette

    Hi Jeff,

    I posted a few pics yesterday, I do no t know why I do not see them today.

    Anyways, a few pics of the stamps, decals & a whole prop shot.

    Just to give you an idea of it's condition.

    Again, just trying to get a bead on it's worth. I'm kind of convinced that this particular prop did not come off the plane my father owned (the hub has no wear) & this looks to be more of a ornamental piece.

    Like to hear what you can tell me about it.

    Thanks!

    Chris

    Chris,

    Thank you for your thoughful note. Very excited to learn about your find...and can't wait to see your pics. I will say that cleaning is very delicate and many an owner has severely damaged their props with improper cleaning. I would be glad to visit with you by telephone if you have a moment to talk.

    Kind regards,

    Jeff
