Postby Guardian » Thu Sep 04, 2003 10:13 pm

Hi all are there any drawings or plans for making a 7-bladed Scimitar Prop ? or some good straight on and side shots would be great, I need a couple of big 5.25" props for a couple of LA Class boats, and Don't feel like shelling out 150+ green backs for a single prop,

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

Have you checked with Al Matava of Ships n' Things? He carries several lines of props...and I am fairly certain that the prices are no where near $125 per unit!

The largest he has is a 5 incher, with a 1 1/4" hub for 105.00, and doesn't have a qty. listed, besides I always wanted to make my own screw any way, do you have any ideas on how I can make a 7 blade 5 1/4" scimitar prop ?

Thanks,
Mike

Just to hijack this thread a bit :
does anybody know how to create your own small
size props (say an inch and less) from brass ?
