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.

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.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )   
    • It's a break action shotgun with one barrel stacked over the other.   Hope this helps  
    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6. 
    • the complete ridge line of the roof is a vent.
