Skywalker your description of the zinc cone sounds accurate for what I have.
All of the information I can find on the internet about Variprop refers to a prop that looks like a new design that clearly does not have the zinc cones.

Do you have a link to any information on their "old" prop?

After looking at more pictures I believe the prop is a Luke feathering prop.
It seems to have the same screw on end fittings (front and back) secured by a locking screw applied into the front and back faces.

Does anyone have any information on this prop, I have not been able to find much. It looks like I will have to call them.

Thanks, jon
