I've got some stuff left over from my Eagle build.

First, I've got a Hartzell polished spinner for sale. This came off of a Pitts S2A with the Hartzell prop. I bought the prop and spinner a few years ago. Prop had an "A" hub so rather than pay for the upgrade and overhaul, I bought a Whirlwind prop and sold the Hartzell, but I kept the spinner because I had plans to mount it to the Whirlwind hub. I wanted polished aluminum, not fiberglass. I found out about Spectrachrome so I don't need this spinner anymore.

Anyway, the spinner is in great shape. The backing plate has a crack in one of the doublers, which is shown in one of the pics. I was going to simply replace this doubler. In the interest of full disclosure, I believe that Hartzell recommends against any type of repair to spinner backing plates.

I have a copy of the logs from the prop that this came off of. Best I can tell, it's got about 1400 hours on it. I can send a copy of the logs to interested parties.

I'll take $250 obo for it, shipping included to anywhere in the continental US.

I've also got a new set of stock Christen Eagle gear leg fairings. What you see in the pics is what you get. I bought these from Benny Davis for $100 a couple years ago. I'll take $100 for them and I'll cover shipping anywhere in the continental US.

I've had a couple questions about the front bulkhead on the spinner. Here are some pics.

Yeah, that guy's a hack. Don't believe anything he says.


Seriously though, if anyone is interested, feel free to make me an offer on them. They're just going to collect dust in my hangar.

So far, the 3D printed gear leg fairings are working out well. I made one more design change to move the seam from the rear, to the middle bottom. Prototypes are at the printer now.
