I bought this throttle quadrant recently from a friend and would like to try to locate another on just like it. Is anyone familar with this type quadrant and can ID what aircraft application it may have been used for?


If I can locate another one, I plan to use them is the Hatz.

Sure is neat looking. I would like to know the source myself. Does it have a friction device under the cover?

Thank Neil,
I sent Marc Roberts the pictures and he thinks it is for the Waco UPF-7 with some modifications. Marc is gearing up to build Waco style quadrants and if he can, I hoping to have him build another one like this as close as possible to matching it..He is very knowledgable and a very good craftsman..

I've seen these on the Taperwings too and some other.

What sort of quadrants is Marc building? Does he have some examples? I might be interested.
