  • Propellar Repair

    Does anyone have any info on repair, I have done some mostly on aluminum props. Looking to maybe start doing more of this, right now I am working on building a balancer for knowing where to remove material. I know pitch blocks should be used and are needed for any major repair or most repair, does anyone have any they want to get rid of HA HA.

      Last year saw short sequence about prop repair on shipshape TV they were using what locked like zinc/aluminum filler which they called propritary filler heating with gas torch. I'm told tig is much better stronger and longer lasting. It also showed pitch blocks in use. Real basic tools and jigs.

      Good luck with your venture.
