Just arrived at Hercules Propellers, a very beautiful original Sopwith Pup propeller.

This huge propeller measured 102" diameter and was manufactured by Frederick Sage & Co. Ltd during the First World War.  Frederick Sage was a shop fitting company that turned to aircraft production to help with the war effort.

This beautiful wood propeller is on loan to us from a museum so that we can produce a reproduction propeller for a replica Sopwith Pup, currently under construction.
