Prop Repair suggestions???

9 posts in this topic

I nicked up my aluminum prop this weekend and need to get it repaired anyone have a suggestion on a good place to go for this?
I live in the south metro and hoping to find somewhere that I don't have to drive an hour to get to if possible.

Thanks.

On Hwy 7 in Minnetonka as you are going East just past 101, there is a Yellow mailbox with a prop on it. Try him. He has fixed a few things for me. I think Specialized Welding is the company name.

Better parts in Bloomington, Mn. best prices around. I had my 60hp prop rebuilt for $35.00. tough to beat from what I was seeing!!

35.00! Wow that is cheap. I was thinking Twin City Outboards, but I believe it's more than 35.00.

Better Parts huh, I will look them up. I have a prop that I need to get remolded again.

Thanks BUSHWAC

Quick Q - is there a story to your "handle"?

Jones, the solution is just don't repair it. Mine curently has whole chunks missing from all 3 blades no sense in fixing it. If you do that, next trip out guess what.

I believe it is bad for the engine to run when the prop. is off balance... At least that is what I've been told.

EBass- my handle is a spin off of my last name. My buddies started calling me BUSHWAC because I always had a shortcut on our BWCA canoe trips. I don't think they'll ever forget those " SHORT CUT'S "!!

Also, I think a lot of people who "rebuild" prop's will send them out to people who actually rebuild them.
