Modern Wooden Propellers
There were so many variations in the design and production of wooden propellers, it is nearly impossible to accurately identify one solely from its appearance. Most propellers will have some identifying information on them. The most useful of these is the drawing number, also often called the design number.
A number of propellers were built in the 1940's under military contract using the year of contract as the first two digits of the design number followed by the letter "K". If you are looking for a design number matching this criteria regardless of manufacturer, check this page: Military Design Numbers. Otherwise, continue below.
