Back in January I realised that a new spinner and attachment plate would be required for the fixed pitch propeller. All the drawings for these parts are available on Claus’s excellent website www,boelkow207.de  A firm in Norfolk, who initially seemed keen to fabricate the spinner, eventually admitted defeat when their toolmaker was unable to supply the former to spin the alluminium around. A local engineering firm were going to make the attachment plate and reuse the original spinner but with covid delays I eventually got cold feet, worried about possible ballance issues.  I have now ordered an RV alluminium spinner, not technically the correct solution but should loosely qualify as an owner fabricated part and suffice while I sort a more ‘correct’ solution.
