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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
