I was engaging in the never ending task of unpacking boxes from our move, and the box that came up was one that just said “MARK”.  My wife packed it, so it could have been anything.  In this case, it was modeling stuff.  And on top of the stuff was a find!  Hooah!  A bag of 5 ¼x3  wood props!

Unfortunately, I don’t have time at the moment to play with them.  But as soon as things settle down I’m gonna playyyyyy…

Lol, I know the feeling, still got several unpacked boxes in the loft from our move, and that was 21 years ago !

I "lost" something at our last address, just could not find it. 3 years later we moved here, and guess what, I found the missing item !!

Mark, what a prize. That 5.25x3 size can even be used on the Cox .020 Pee Wee as a power prop to extend engine run 1 more minute with same net thrust on a sport R/C plane (Littlest Stick, Roaring 20, Schoolboy, etc.)

Not long ago, I bought myself an assortment of Bull Nose electric plastic props in various sizes, so I could test them for potential on small glow engines, since traditional props are getting harder to find.
