Spinners

Sam, I saw a fellow make a bulkhead for a spinner. He cut a 2" piece of
plywood in the radius he needed and the cut a female an eighth of a inck
bigger. Then laid a piece of aluminum cut in a circle about a half of an
inch larger over the (male) form and put the female on top. Put it in a
press and Wal-laa had a bulkhead.

All,

I have purchased a Performance Designs prop, which has a hub thickness of
4.0" My old prop was a Warnke, with a hub thickness of 3.5". My old
spinner, fit for the Warnke, will not fit the new prop.

It looks like I'm going to buy a new spinner from A/C Spruce and use it.
The problem being, A/C Spruce does not offer a front bulkhead for 4" hubs.

Has anybody sucessfully made and flown a spinner with a homemade front
bulkhead? If so, how did you fabricate it?

Any other suggestions?

Sam

Sam,
far and away the easiest way is to get your local metal spinner to make you one. The

Sam,

I made my front spinner bulkhead. Cut a piece of aluminum (appropriate thickness and diameter) the right size for the front of the hub, measure and drill prop bolt holes, cut clear tubing and install around the radius. When the spinner is installed bulkhead should be a snug fit. I have 280 hours on it and not a sign of a crack. I have a polished aluminum spinner.

Sam,
I considered this same dilemma when I replace my prop, but ended up with a
3.5" hub prop instead. I think the reason they do not offer a front bulkhead
for the 4" hub is because there is no room for it. If your using the spinner
that I think you are, I'm thinking the prop hub will come right up next to
the spinner at this thickness.
Not sure about this though.

David,

I believe it was either .080 or .090. I sliced clear tubing, wrapped it around the spinner bulkhead and taped the two ends together with gray duct tape. Has worked well and does a great job.

Sam,
I used 0.062 aluminum for mine. Incidentally, I first used Tygon vinyl for the tubing, but found that it began to cut through. I replaced it with poluurethane which has much higher cut and
abrasion resistance. It has been in place for about 300 hours with no sign of cutting.

Sam/Jim,

this is upon reflection, a really good idea and simpler by far than the
metal spinning suggestion. there should be very little load on the
bulkhead if the spinner is accurately installed and the tougher tubing has
stood the test of time - great idea!!

Jim / Bob,

What criteria did you use to select the thickness of the material? Would
.125 be too thick? Would .060 be too thin?

Did you mount the spinner bulkhead forward of the 1/4" crush plate or
against the forward surface of the prop? I would think if it were the
latter, there would be some issues around the prop holes with the tubing
peeking out.

This is very timely for me as I was about to order something from Spruce.

I bought a spinner from Aircraft Spruce and made a front bulkhead out of
fiberglass ( I like to work with a medium I understand). I Made a male mold
from composition board. I measured the position of the bulkhead from the
back of the spinner then determined the diameter the front bulkhead needed
to be and cut the 3/4 in. particle board 3/16ths smaller to allow for the 3
layers of glass. I then beveled the front of the board to the taper of the
spinner. I sanded it to a fine finish and sprayed it with varnish, applied a
liberal coat of wax for a parting agent and laid it up. After the glass
cures rout out the particle board in 3 or 4 segments with a dremel tool,
drill your prop bolt holes and apply one or 2 layers of electrical tape to
the outer edge to keep the fiber glass from abrading the aluminum and you
are ready. Mine has about 400 hrs on it and still runs true with no cracks.
