    I've been researching a wooden propeller without much success and found your site to be the most helpful and comprehensive. I'm turning to you for advice as I'm running out of sources.

    It's 7 foot, 4 inches long. It has 8 bolt-holes measuring 5/16" in diameter as well as a 9th hole (on one side) measuring 1 and 9/16 inches deep (the hub is 3 and 15/16" deep and 2 and 13/16" in diameter). The leading edge of the blades are sheathed in copper measuring 29.5" from the tips.

    There are no decals. Stamped onto the top of the hub in black letters is: DES-H 575 RH beneath which is marked: No 13359. On the side of the hub and above the mounting hole is the number 5173. Beneath this and below the mounting hole appears the number 3. Both of these numbers are impressed into the wood.

    From what I can determine this is a "modern" type but I value it as much as had it been off a WW1 Spad. Once again, any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Doug
