About the Sopwith propeller
Wooden propeller, 250 cm long, was made mainly of mahogany wood by various English manufacturers during the years 1917 to 1918. It was powered by 9-cylinder rotary engine Clerget 9B with 130hp. The machine, which it powered, was one of the most famous British fighter aircraft of the First World War - Sopwith F.1 Camel.
Propeller blade is circa 21 cm wide, thickness of the center of the propeller is around 16 cm, if the material is observed, ie, mahogany, or a combination of ash / walnut. If it is made of beech wood, which is stained with mahogany, the thickness is circa 10cm. On request, we can also observe the thickness with beech wood.
Tips of the blades can be covered with fabric, which served as protection against damage to the leading edge. The sheathing is only painted with color on scaled down propellers. . Furthermore, a metal hub can be mounted on the propeller, which will allow you to easily mount the prop on the wall.
