Click on the photo for additional views of this 4 blade antique brass ship propeller.
A 4 blade antique brass ship propeller is always a great find, especially if it is in brass. This piece is solid brass and measures 24 inches in total diameter. And it measures 12 inches from the center of the hub to the edges of the blades. The hub is 3 inches in diameter, and 4 inches from front to back. This is a vintage brass propeller, pulled from a real ship. Both sides are photographed. This authentic brass ship propeller weighs just under 37 pounds.
Simply speaking, a maritime propeller is made up of sections of helicoidal surfaces which act together ‘screwing’ through the water (hence the common reference to marine propellers as “screws”). Three, four, or five blades are most common in marine propellers, although designs which are intended to operate at reduced noise will have more blades. The blades are attached to a boss, or hub, which should be as small as the needs of strength allow – with fixed-pitch propellers the blades and boss are usually a single casting.
We have a few other ship propellers in stock – just scroll up or down to view them! Placing an order is easy. You can call us directly at 574-870-1571, or send us an email via the “Contact Us” button and we will get right back to you.

Click on the photo for additional views of this wind gauge anemometer.
This is an antiques maritime wind gauge anemometer with a nautical propeller that was salvaged from a vessel destined to be cut up for scrap at one of the shipbreaking yards. The propeller for sale is aluminum, the tail cone is fiber, and most of the rest of the unit is brass. The aluminum propeller has four blades and measures 13 1/2 inches tip to tip. From the ground to the top of the tail this wind gauge anemometer measures 30 inches tall. From the front tip to the back of the tail it measures 27 inches. The base mount is 6 inches wide with 5 mount holes. The propeller turns freely. The unit spins 360 degrees on the mount pipe. This wind gauge anemometer weighs about 35 pounds.
By definition, a windmill anemometer is similar to its namesake, the windmill, in that it must be parallel to the direction of the wind in order to work properly. A wind vane, attached to the tail of the anemometer, is pushed around until the propeller is facing into the wind. The wind then turns the propeller, which rotates a mechanism that calculates the wind speed.
We have not determined if this wind gauge anemometer works or not, but regardless, it will make a unique display item in your home or outside in your yard or garden area.

Click on the photo to see additional views of this vintage ship’s watertight door wheel.
Often times we see watertight doors and hatches at the shipyards and we walk past them because the of the overall size and weight. I always thought the coolest part of these original watertight doors and hatches was the cast iron wheel, so I started pulling them when we spotted ones that could be removed without too much effort.
This vintage ship’s watertight door wheel measures about 14 inches wide and weighs about 17 pounds. This item is being sold in as found condition. You can expect loose paint, dirt, and some grease here and there. This is a great display piece that can be displayed unrestored, restored, or even painted!
