    Any idea what the big round nut type thing is?
    It's a shipping cover to protect the threads on the end of the propeller shaft on a new engine. The chap in the foreground of this photo has his hand on one:

    Thanks for that Paul i nearly didnt bring it home. Just had a quick poke around in the snow and found this one i found ages ago.

    Any idears on this tube? Iv found 2 of these on 2 different air fields. .50 for size.

    My digging buddy seems to think they might be ordnance related?? Whatever it is its well made.

    Good selection, the black tube is a push rod cover from the front of a radial engine cylinder (you just can't see them on Paul's photo!). The bakelite electrical plugs are sockets for heated flying suits.
