Default More data on AT-17 prop

I own one of these props, given to me by my father in law. He was a B-17/24 pilot and navigator. He trained on the AT-17 for multi-engine. I found this web site http://www.cessnat50.org/manuals.html. It contains the Cessna manuals for the plane. Check out pages 157-158.

Does anyone have a picture of this prop mounted on a BL-17 or AT-17. I've searched on the net, but haven't found one.

I think that the reason these props are so common is that they were produced in large numbers then quickly made obsolete by the introduction of metal variable pitch propellers for that engine. That's why most of the photographs of the Bamboo Bomber show the metal props.
