    I bought four airplane propellers and would like to identify what type of airplane they came from. The blades are in good shape but the ring at the base is corroded, can't find any numbers on the the props they look to me like a B17 propeller. I believe the were used for a different application at one point with a two blade hub. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thanks Johnsy

    They were on a two blade hub and were used in an orchard with a v8 motor attached to them but originally I believe the came of an airplane not sure what type? I live in Tucson

    They do look like the pic of the black b17 blade. Do know where I can find the specs for a b17 blade. Also on the hub side is that suppose to be a ring and piƱon type gear? It looks like someone cut the gear part off with a cutting torch.
