Default Pointy Spinner With Hidden Screws - Where To Find

I had a Pointy Spinner on my RV-4 with no screws. I forgot the guys name who use to make them, recall he was in Oregon, and I am not sure if he still sells spinners.

I think the stock spinner is fine, but that pointy spinner with hidden screws is SEXY....

Default Madonna spinner

Mine was by Jerry Harrold in Oregon. It?s a very well made spinner.

Default Pointy Spinner

We had one on our RV6 and it delaminated in flight; with only 345 hours since new. We installed the Vans stock spinner and spinner bulkhead with our constant speed prop. I can tell you that the quality of the vans spinner & bulkhead is superior to the ?pointy one?.

Don't know about the "pointy" thing, but anyone with a little fiberglass experience can do the "screwless mod". I did it on mine and it looks great.

People always ask what holds the spinner on and my answer is "SPEED"!

Mel look down this page about 60% down, yellow RV-4 with that sexy spinner.

Mel how did you do the hidden screw method. I recall my Harold spinner bolted a metal disk about inch wide to front of my C/S Hartzell.
An internal bulkhead bonded into the composite spinner slipped over that metal disk for the forward spinner support. The aft screws went in
from the back. Again an intergral flange was a built into the spinner. Screws went through the metal plate attached to prop and into flange
of spinner with nut plates. I suppose I could modify the stock spinner to do this.
