Question How much to have a 4 blade prop cleaned up??

I'm looking at a used 4 blade bravo 1 prop which looks pretty dull and a little rusty in the hub area. How much would it cost to have it sent out to be cleaned and sharpened? Are they able to get it cleaned up to look like new?

Otherwise prop is in good shape, just a small nick or two on the edges, really minor. Mostly looks like it just sat in the water a lot.

Yeah its pretty to clean up props to look new, as long as it hasnt corroded away part of the hub or blade. We used to use these guys to work on our props

for a simple cleaning though, any local shop shoudl be able to do it.

I agree, any local shop should be able to do it for about 35/40 a blade on stainless steel. I think one shop here in town charges 150 the other 160. I do mine when ever I get into some sand and they come out like new.

I use MaryKate On/Off Hull Cleaner to remove the rust. My local shop charges $110 for polishing, truing and cupping. If you are a marine mechanic, they'll do it for $50, shop around.

I say the same thing about the lawnmower blade - I sharpen it by mowing at the curb of the street

S&S Propeller will blueprint and balance a 3blade mir+ for 190.
It will take one week.
