Default 1th post to say hi and question about Fahlin prop

Hello to all of you and thank you for setting such a forum!

My name is Daniel, I live close to Zurich in Switzerland. My girlfriend and I just bought a Fahlin prop on e-bay about 1 month ago. We are looking for more infos about it and I give you here the details:

Prop is about 94" long, (2380mm) and have a conical hub made of plywood.
8 holes hub
Metal leading edges
Markings at the base of one blade read:
Fahlin D\738
No. 11334 HP160
R.P.M. 180
ATC\

What I find strange is the RPM showing only 180 instead of 1800 or similar...

On the other side, at the base of the other blade, markings show:
CW 432
738

From what I found, it could have been on a Ryan, could someone confirm?
Is there anyway to find out the year of manufacture?

Unfortuntely, the prop has been painted (yes... ) and then stored under direct sun light and we had to restore it to make it decent looking.
The two decals are missing or sun burned. We are looking to buy orignal one if possible, any help appreciated on this matter.

Thank you for reading and have a nice sunday!

Dan & Caro

Hi Dan and Caro

And welcome to the forum. I don't see that drawing number on the pubished list, but I'll check another list when I get home. Is there anything stamped after "ATC"? That would be the type certificate number which might help narrow it down.

Decals can be custom made, but are fairly expensive. I don't know of any original Fahlin decals.

Hi Dave,

Thank's for your feedback! No, there's nothing written after ATC. From what we found it looks like to have been on a Ryan ST3KR airplane.

I'll check later how to post pics and will do it.

best regards,

Dan

There's one on this page from when his prop shop was in CA: www.modernwoodenpropellers.com/fahlin.htm. Ole Fahlin had other locations too over the years that had different decals.
