Props, a division of Valley Engineering, LLC, was purchased in 2001 to
continue offering the highest quality wooden propellers to the public. Gene and Larry
Smith, owners of Valley Engineering, LLC, had used Culver Props on their own
aircraft for some time and were so impressed with their performance and quality, they
decided to buy the company after learning that it was ceasing production. The company and
equipment were moved from Pennsylvania to Rolla, Missouri, where the manufacturing of
these superior wooden propellers continues today. Special care is given to match the size
and pitch of the prop to meet the customer's specific need. Each propeller is made of only
the best northern hard maple and birch available, with each piece of wood being
hand-selected specifically for the unit being made. It is then taken through the
manufacturing process where it is hand-crafted by a skilled woodworker and carefully
inspected before shipping. Such individual attention to each propeller ensures that the
customer receives the best wooden propeller available on today's market. Call us today to
