Wow! Great photos! What is the diameter of this prop? Also were generator props always right-handed props (rotating clockwise when viewed from the front)?

This prop is eighteen inches in diameter. I don't know if they were all RH rotation; as they were designed by humans, I doubt it ! Would the direction of rotation matter for a generator prop? If it generated a sine wave, would the result not be the same either way?

HI BOB
IF ITS ANY USE, WHILE CHECKING THE BACK OF THE HUB THERE IS A SECOND "AID" STAMP WHICH WHEN YOU USE A TORCH TO CAST A SHADOW ONTO IT REVEALS IT TO BE H43

REGARDS ANDREW

Excellent. Thank you. Another one for my database. What is your surname Andrew? So that I can credit your photos in volume 2 to you. At the moment you are merely Kronos; it's time I changed that!

With regards,

Bob

What is the thickness of this interesting little laminated prop? And how many laminations does it appear to have?
