  • Anyone try Using JB Weld to "fill" a ding

    I churned the bottom a couple of times this weekend - stay away from West Branch State Park / Kirwan Lake - and my prop edge got a little filed here and there but there is one genuine ding where the steel sheared a little and pulled back from the edge of the prop blade. I bent it back with a hammer and some pliers but it's still got some roughness. I was thinking of filling the gouge with some JB Weld and then file down following the contour of the original blade as best I can. Is there any disadvantage to do that vs. just file down the ding right off to the point where the crack / crease ends? I am looking at a crease that is about 2-3 mm long.

    Thanks.

    Have you looked into the cost of having it repaired professionally? I would worry about a blade being bent even if you fix the crease and it running bad. I drug my prop up the ramp once and it was only $30 to get fixed.

      What's a good prop shop to use in the Cleveland area?

          Google prop repair and you will find several places that will take care of it via mail. I was pretty pleased with Prop MD.
