Pratt and Whitney R1830 Twin Wasp engine coffee table
This is the reduction gear housing from the front of a WW2 Pratt and Whitney R1830 Twin Wasp engine. It is painted in the characteristic grey blue paint with an original P&W dependable engine aluminium enamelled badge with the Bald Eagle emblem.

There is an original WW2 Air Ministry brass eat-late on the side.

We have made an aluminium plate for the base and bolted it to the original studs with copper washers and spacers. To this we have added a solid 6 inch diameter aluminium bar and a steel foot.

To the top of the engine we have renewed the rubber gasket ring and had a 10mm tempered glass sheet cut to size with polished edges. It sits flush inside the raised lip of the engine.

We have painted the inside in a lighter grey colour and added stainless steel nits and copper washers.

It is a very stable and sturdy coffee table with a thick and safe tempered glass top.

You can use the inside of the engine dome for display.

The Pratt and Whitney R1830 Twin Wasp was used in many wartime aircraft and then used post war in Dc-3's

WW2 Aircraft included the C47/Dakota as well as Catalina, Wildcat etc,

The air ministry also purchased engines as spares and used them in the Short Sunderland and the Vickers Wellington.

After the war the engine was used in DC-3's for several decades. Its presence in used condition in the UK suggests this is how it was used.

Diameter of table top 47cm and stands 43cm high

Weight is 26.5 kg.

Vintage Westland Sea King Pilots Chair

A vintage used chair from a Westland Sea King Helicopter - marked with the Westland Inspectors stamp and Westland Part number.

Also with the original stencilling for PILOT.

We purchased this chair and have converted it into a fully working chair for office, den etc.

The chair has been mounted on a rotating, height adjustable, backwards/forwards moving chair base - made by Chapmans for use in a commercial vehicle/camper.

We have mounted the base on a 50 cm square section of high density polyethylene for stability.

We have taken the seat base from the Chapmans chair and purchased a set of original Sea King orange foam seat back cushions.

We have recovered the foam backs and the base in a grey fabric with vinyl sides.

An original orange Westland Sea King seat bolster has been used as a head rest.

The end result is a fully functional chair.

The chair stands 1.2m tall - but height can be adjusted using the height adjuster on the RHS.

US Army Vietnam Huey Cabinet

A large section of Bell UH-1D Huey helicopter tail boom.

Converted into a cabinet.

We have taken a section of a UH-Id made by Dornier for the German army, we have stripped it back to bare metal and repainted it - grey on the inside and Olive Drab on the outside.

We have made a door out of 4mm aluminium plate and shaped it to match the tail opening. It is held on by two stainless steel strap hinges. We have used a knurled knob and cam to allow dole to be closed and locked.

We have made a new back out of 1.2mm aluminium sheet with edges bent over to fit inside the original tail.

We have added pure copper bar legs that are removable and bolt onto clinch nuts in the base.

Inside is a wooden base shelf and a teak/aluminium shelf.

The first two pictures show the final addition - the words UNIT and ARMY as the full UNITED STATES ARMY would have been painted down both sides of a Vietnam Huey tail boom.

Finally we have relocated the data plate from the top of the boom to the front of the cabinet.

The cabinet section if 90 cm high, ca. 70 cm wide and 52 cm deep. The hairpin legs are 72cm tall. So cabinet stands ca. 6 foot tall. This is so that when you open the door it is at head height.

A WW2 german armoured lamp (Panzerlampe) that has been restored and converted from lead/acid to a mains transformer and 12V LED bulb. The steel and glass are all fully intact.

Stripped and de rusted. The lamp has been treated, primed and repainted. The lamp works by rotating the top section so that a circuit is made with the contacts in the lower section. The original lamps had lead/sulphuric acid in the base and recharging vents. The small gas vent in the upper section is missing.

By adding 12V wiring and an illuminated switch from the mains transformer the lamp can be turned on via the switch or rotating the upper section. The bulb is a high powered LED from an automotive source.

Repainted with the original stamps highlighted. The stamps included Luftwaffe FL number and ordnance code confirming this as a later war manufactured item.

Used by both the Luftwaffe and the Wehrmacht this one appears to be Luftwaffe use.
