Hi All: I'm going to have my 13 1/2" x 16 SS prop repitched to 17. What type of prices have folks paid for this type of work.

I have done a double cup which basically makes it a 17" for about $10. To make it a true 1" pitch more it should be about $50.

Hi Bigshot: I'm getting quotes of $115-200, over the phone. Where can I get it done for $50.00?

The Prop Shop in Lafayette, LA usually gets $80 to $90 off me a couple times a year. That's with no postage n'handlin', just special delivery by hooter-tram.

Milwaukee, 13x19 stainless prop, $90 to "clean up" battered leading edges and repaint with teflon. May require add welds to refinish, may not. I haven't seen the results yet, still at the shop.
Its rocky here...

Depends on what they do. Most of the time I just send it in for a clean up or repitch it is about $50(SS). If prop is older I have it rehubbed which is another $40-50. Alum is cheaper to do and FYI is they can only repitch 2" either way. Pitching down is not as good as adding pitch also.

Thankx Bigshot: Spoke to GP this noon, and will be sending the prop down next week to be add some cupping. I forgot what your first name is... person I spoke with was impressed that I was calling from NH, and wanted to know where on earth the referal came from.
