Default WTB Wood Prop for 6A

Still looking for a wood prop for my 6A rebuild. I'm installing a low hour O-320 150hp and i'm looking for a cheap prop.
Had a couple people contact me several months ago but lost contact info.

Default Wood Propeller

I removed a wood propeller from my RV at about 50 hrs when increasing the horsepower of the engine and getting a whirlwind propeller. It was made especially for a 150hp RV. It is a beautiful multilaminated maple prop. I haven't counted lately but it must have 50-70 laminations making it very strong. I also have the matching RV spinner, back plate, crush plate and bolts. Performance Propeller manufactured it. They still make props and have a website and this link tells the construction method:

I'll try to attached a picture from their website of what mine looks like.
I would like $1350 for the prop and spinner. If interested I can take some pictures of it and the logbook.
My prop has inscribed on the hub:
Bill Arnold (whom the prop was sold to)
24.5 deg
Nov 01

I can be reached at

I may have an Amar Demuth for sale within the next month. I've been running it on a 160 HP RV-4, and it's a bit under pitched for 160 HP. I've got a replacement prop on hand; just need to get it on the a/c & test before releasing the existing A-D for sale.

If you don't find anything right away, keep me in mind.
