A propeller fella........

Post  rsv1cox on Mon Jan 16, 2017 10:41 am

Recently I have become fascinated by the propellers that I receive on engines and in related grab-bags.  Some are really nice, but this 12" Top Flight was particularly grungy.



Using the least invasive method I first tried formula 409 and a kitchen pot scrubber.  As expected not much progress.



So giving up on saving the Top Flight logo I threw caution to the wind and hit it with a cutting oil and fine steel wool, better but not good so I graduated to used 400 grit wet/dry and cutting oil.  Progress.  I finished with more fine wool and Howard Feed-N-Wax.



 

I wanted to mount it on one of my .60 Enyas, but Enya insists on using 7mm prop shafts on .60's and the propeller had a 6mm hole so I put in on an OS Max .60 which uses a 6mm shaft.



Big fellas, little fellers...........



Much ado about very little, but I think it looks nice as a display and would probably be able to use.

Those do indeed look very nice. If I see correctly, they are mounted on a kitchen counter? Great way to shred veggies and or mix dip and drinks quickly and efficiently if I do say so.... Shocked

Thanks guys.  Almost forgot about this one.  Smile





I still have plans to make one of my own.  I think I can carve a reasonable example out of a clear white pine 2X6.

I need a nice big wooden prop around here too. Might look good over the fireplace.
