I know it was on Craigslist a few months ago.  You might try sending him a personal message.

I just finished a batch of 6' props using methods described in an earlier post.  I no longer have access to the Shopbot CNC router so I found a local business with the equipment and provided them with my programs and $75 an hour.  Here's the highlights of these ready to spin props:

Tight vertical grain (clear) Douglas Fir
Machined using 3D CNC router
Hand sanded
3 coats of a quality spar varnish (Epifanes clear gloss)
rough balanced (if needed)
8 mil copper leading edges w/monel staples
final balanced using reproduction Wincharger balance weights
predrilled for Wincharger 6V & and 12V but could be re-drilled for a Parris Dunn or Parmak

I have a couple not spoken for if interested-- $300 ea + $50 for shipping costs (4" tube, ins, fedex ground), lower 48 only.
My contact info can be found at

Heres the Craigslist link.  It has the early 2 piece tail, unfortunately painted.  If you have a 2 piece tail or a picture of one with original graphics, Id really like to see it.

Welcome and congrats on your find.  It's not uncommon for folks to not recognize a vintage wind charger for what it is.  Mistaking it for a weathervane is a fairly common.  I've seen a Parris Dunn tail vane mistaken for a railroad switch lever.  The early model #s stood for the year they were manufactured so you have a 1937 machine.  I'm in the process of making a batch of 6' props for myself and a few others.  They're kind of pricy but they're very nice, $300.  Tight vertical grain Douglas Fir, CNC machined, 3 coats of quality spar varnish, copper leading edges and balanced, ready to spin.  My price had to go up as I'm having to pay someone else to do the CNC router work plus the wood is pretty expensive.  If interested, my contact info is under resources/part suppliers...Wind Charger Mike.  If you're just wanting it to be a display piece, then an original prop would suffice and you can sometimes find those on ebay or craigslist.  
Also, the 6V part diagrams are under resources too, free so don't pay the guy on ebay for the same thing.

 I found this interesting item at an antique store yesterday, had to have it. They said it was a weather vane. After searching for some time, its a wincharger. Appears to be a model37 and other than having a fence picket on the front, its in great shape. How would I figure out how old this is? Where would I get a blade?
