ROYAL NAVY PATTERN
MAHOGANY & BRASS STEERING WHEEL

Royal Navy Mahogany and Brass Steering Wheel image'border=

DIMENSIONS: 36" Dia. by 2 1/2" deep           WEIGHT 25 pounds

Presented is an elegant Mahogany ships 8 spoke steering wheel with an inlaid brass ring, front and back, and a massive center brass hub. The hub has a  1" center with a key way for that size shaft.  The enduring maker, Mactaggart Scott Co. Ltd, whose operations date back to 1898, was and continues on as a major defense contractor for the British and Australian Navy's. They served with distinction in  that capacity during WW I and WW II as well as during more recent conflicts. The hub has the maker's name and Edinburgh on its face with no other markings so this wheel was likely made between wars.

With all the decorator styled steering wheels flooding today's market, it should be refreshing for you to be assured of obtaining an authentic piece of the highest quality.

PROVENANCE:  Purchased in the ordinary course of business with no known provenance

The King Pin shown below is a unique feature of this maker's steering wheel.  It is used to show when the rudder is a midships. On less fancy wheels,  there may be a Turks head made of small stuff added to this spoke. In dark and stormy seas, it is a big aid to the helmsman in knowing the position of    the rudder.

 MACTAGGART  SCOTT BRIEF HISTORY: 

MacTaggart Scott & Co Ltd was founded by Hugh MacTaggart and Robert Grigor Scott in 1898 and contours in business today. World War One saw the company making steering telemotors and submarine equipment. The Admiralty link lead to the development of seaplane catapults and arresting gear. During WWII they met the demand for the British Fleet's carrier building programme. Submarine equipment production included vent valves, bow caps, mast hoisting jiggers and torpedo loading presses.

The end of WWII allowed the company to develop pumps and motors. The successful development and running of the RHP pump led to today's "stealth" enhancing motors and pumps in submarines.

During the 50s MacTaggart Scott's hydraulic deck machinery so impressed the Admiralty that they reversed their preference for traditionally electric systems. The company provided anchor windlasses, winches and Replenishment At Sea equipment.

The Navy's requirement to handle helicopters and MacTaggart Scott's reputation with arrester gear led to the production of an practical solution allowing the cross handling of helicopters.

Nuclear submarines led to design and manufacture of retracting bow planes, shrouded masts and the launching and recovery of communication equipment and significantly the first US submarine equipment order in 1983.

The end of the Cold War meant development of overseas markets as Royal Navy demands changed. The majority of the company's work has been for British Defence and alongside current commitment to overseas naval solutions the future sees continued success in the global market.
