  • Prop repair done right

    This is really cool prop repair. Only 6 of these machines exist in the usa that fixes props better than new. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXPAIPU73F4

    Linden is my hometown prop guy. He travels all over the world and fixes giant propellers. He knows his stuff. He also fixed my OJ prop that OJ wouldn't touch after I hit a log. He did it for free because he wasn't sure it could be done and he couldn't get it completely in spec, but it performs great.

      That is pretty cool that his machine can bend a prop where it’s not possible to get a hammer.I have been fixing my own props for the last couple years with a pitchblock I bought. My repairs turn out really nice and saves me a ton of money

          I have had about 12 prop strikes in the last three years boating in my shallow river. Do the math on what your local prop guy would charge.
