This Rolls-Royce Camshaft was removed from the remains of a merlin engine powering Lancaster R5539 which crashed while carrying out diving trials over Boscombe Downs with a simulated load of concrete bombs. More details will be supplied along with this item.
A piece of WWII history, the camshaft is in good condition although it does have pitting to the surface metal. See photos for more information.
A set of brass wall mounts have been fabricated so that this item can be displayed, removed and rotated by hand. It is a tactile piece and beautifully engineered.
Size approximately 1metre wide.
