Marconi-Newton Windmill Propeller & Generator

the metal propeller is marked constant speed windmill and Pat No 262558/1926 Type 183. It also carries a military broad arrow property mark and an Air Ministry Reference 5U/4528 and whilst we don’t know the aircraft it came from it clearly served with the RAF. The propeller is attached to a 12 Volt generator and at 3500-4000 RPM it would have delivered 150 Watts. This unit is for sale as a collectable only although it may be the generator does still work but we are unable to offer any C of A.. The propeller measures 22.5 “ (56 cm) and the generator is 9” long (22 cm). The whole unit weighs a hefty 6 kilos so would suggest on this one overseas shipping may prove prohibitive although if you can pay we can ship worldwide!
