Does this prop have hope ?

Recommended Posts

cstk421

This is my memorial day prop from last year. The only way we could get it off was by cutting it with a Sawzall in order to get it to break loose. We didn't cut through the collar but the one side is close. Does anyone have thoughts or experience with getting a prop like this repaired ? I would love to have it as a spare. Any recommended shops I should contact ? Thanks !

Recycle the metal is the best option on this one.

Lots of reasons. Its kinda like a car, when cost to repair reaches a threshold, its totaled. But, I do not see that hub holding torque once repaired.

I have never seen a prop that had to be cut like that.. did you try the normal prop puller and torch technique? after looking at it, I have little hope for it.. but i have seen prop shops do some amazing things... So it woulnt hurt to bring it to a prop shop and ask. or just call ACME and ask them

Prop shops around here don't repair them when they have hub issues.

figure out which end it up, take it behind the woodshed, and shoot it. It's in too much misery, stop the suffering.

Might have been salvageable until you cut the hub. It's a conversation piece at this point.
