These are not cast, they are machined.

WOW!

What size are these? In other words: what scale?

Thanks for the post Steve, I appreciate it. I turn the hubs and some get extensive mill work. The blades are cut from sheet brass and thickness depends on the propeller size and type.
The hub can either have a smooth bore or threads. A set screw in the hub side is used to fasten the prop to a shaft in most cases. The smallest ones I make are for the 1:200 Arizona.

Thank you,
Keith
