Prop Repair

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced place to get a prop redone in the north metro? I'm in Brooklyn Center and it seems to me that I have seen one out here some place, just can't seem to locate it? Anyone with any info?

From Brooklyn Center you're a short drive to Formula Propeller and Columbia Heights.

I have had Jay at Soderblooms do a few for me and they were returned very fast and they looked and worked like new for a very reasonable price.

Give Jay a try and you will be happy.

Soderbloom repaired one for me in less than a week. It was a prop that the guy at the shop just east of 35 and south of Forest Lake told me was junk. Send it to Soderbloom and you'll be done in less than 10 days and the price will surprise you.

Lances Prop Shop in Forest Lake does really good work as well.

Formula Propeller in Brooklyn Park. Just South of 94 on CR-81. They do good work!

Formula Propeller is a bunch of butchers. They bleeped up every prop I've ever given to them. I refer to the shop as a "grind and shine" operation. I think I lost 10mph on the final one I gave them a chance with and yes I gave them the chance to tweak it after the 1st trip.

How long ago was this? They did a fantastic job on mine this spring.

Don's Used Outboards in MapleGrove. He doesn't repair them, but knows someone or he could have a spare on hand. I've gotten 2 from him. Another year another prop. I run rivers though and rocks and props don't mix.
