Hard to find and rare! 15’ diameter, triple blade AIRPLANE propeller complete. Came off of a triple tail Constellation, also used on similar sized aircraft. This is a complete 3-bladed propeller that comes with hub, shell, entire hub interior hardware, spinner (cone). Propeller is solid aluminum blades (not hollow) attached to solid steel hub mounts. I have had this propeller for over 15 years and it has been stored inside from day one. Exceptions to a couple of chips in one of the blade tips as pictures show, the entire propeller is in great condition and I would rate it easily an 8 out of 10. The leading edge rubber was carefully removed. The spinner cone had the prop pitch components removed to reduce weight.
I had plans on making it into a ceiling fan for an art gallery. I had a machinist inset a large bearing into a sleeve, then press it into one end of the hub, as you can see in one of the #3 pictures. The hub is un-altered and the sleeve was made to fit and can be pressed back out of the hub to return back to original condition. I have another bearing for the other end, along with sleeve material and a 2” x 40” solid steel shaft that was tapped and threaded for a course 1” hardened grade 8 bolt as shown in #6 photos. This solid shaft was to go through both hub bearings and be mounted to a beam saddle to hang from a ceiling for a one of a kind artistic fan. The leading edge rubber was carefully removed because of condition and I was going to polish the blades to a high stainless look when I was done with it. I have over $400 into machine shop time and parts, for making it into a ceiling fan.
Given a (4), rated from 1-5, five being like new.
