It's called a Four Winds II.  I don't know much about them but it is obvious that they liked the Wincharger air brake governor design.

All was good with your description until you used the word plastic, doesn't sound like anything vintage but I'd be glad to take a look.  There are a number of pc programs that allow you to resize the pics.  I'm sure there are also phone apps that do the same but I've never used them.  Last resort I'd be glad to do it for you if you email them to me.

Hi, I am the OP. I just read about posting pics, mine re too large. I am not that computer savvy, what needs to be done to reduce the size of my pics? They were taken with my phone

 Hello all, to tell the truth i'm not a wind turbine fanatic, i'm a sailor. Well anyway this AM i picked up a CL posting that was advertised as a marine 12v wind generator. I'm not so sure it's marine as it may be a bit bulky. Anyway after search many images i observed that my turbine blades have a similarity to the wincharger turbines. I want to post the pics here and see if anybody can help with ID. I rec'd 3 parts in total, the gen body itself which looks like an old car generator, the dual turbine with brakes(?) and a plastic swinging vane. any help thanks
BTW-the wind turbines have an overall length of 5 ft and the vane is about 39 inches.
I tried posting pics was told too large attachment

I'm like you, I only want to make one. I cherry picked a tight grained piece of Douglas Fir.  The balance on a razor blade at this point is dead on. I will see what changes when I varnish it.  So far so good!

Your prop looks great!  Now that you have all the fixturing built, are you going to make more?  Looks like you could knock them out pretty quick.   What type wood did you use?

I used an air vibrating sander to finish the profile. I again used #36 grit sand paper. An air sander is 10 times faster than an electric one.
I still need to balance and shape the ends. I will finish the propeller with Man O' War Marine varnish. I spent three days on this project to get this far. It was fun and rewarding!!

I used an electric planer to rough cut the convex portion of the propeller. Take very thin cuts and take your time.
