    Hello. I thought i would come to this source for a bit of help. NI am uncertain if this is a WW2 propeller blade, but i am trying to id it for a friend. It Shows manufacturing measurements on one side and has written on the reverse W/Q T-6 on the reverse. Any help would be appreciated...or a suggestion of where i might look for info would be appreciated.

    Height is 40 " width of blade 8 1/2 "... MARKED ON THE BOTTOM SER NO. J 19037 TEST NO 117078 M-1

    WHAT ERA COULD THIS BE FROM? DOES IT HAVE A VALUE?

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN SUPPLY

    My first thought, seeing the 'T6' notation, was the NA T-6 Texan/ Harvard, but I think it would be more engine specific than aircraft specific. Joe (Flyboy J) might be able to help further.

    I haven't been able to identify it yet but the writing all over it is someone writing down inspection information, maybe measuring thickness or prop pitch. I notice machine marks on it, is the surface smooth or can you feel those "ripples" to the touch?

    This is a Hartzell Propeller blade, after it was removed from the milling process. It is not a WW2 vintage, try 2000 or so. There is no model number, so it was probably a test blade or failed dimensional inspection
