Prop Balancing !

Postby Bigvern » Sat Dec 28, 2013 9:38 pm

Got these propeller balancing rods back from the machine shop yesterday ! Cost was quite high because I only wanted 3 made to see what they would be like. But have spoken to them today and if anyone is interested in purchasing one, I can order a lot larger quantity I would be able to sell them for £13 each + postage which would be a genunie postage cost. (don't know price at this time)
They are made of stainless steal left hand thread one end right hand the other marked black one end for the black prop silver the other.
Any interest please email me at glenedwards@mail.com
Thanks.
Glen.

I'm new to all this and have no idea how you even balance a pro if needed, are there any guides about?
Ok i can see you have screwed the pro onto a metal shaft but how do you actually balance a prop if it needs it?

The rod will not go thru the new props. They are closed on one end.
