A company bought their CNC machines over a year ago to build airplanne parts (I believe they employed Matt). I would find it strange for the new managment to allow tear down and set up of tooling to make an occasional set of propellers. I'm not sure if they are repairing propellers anymore.
They're good people, I wish them the best.

AO,
I think you are right, just tried their Ph. # and it was disconnected. That's too bad, I've had good luck with them, and they are/were just down the road from me.....

DAH propellers have been the best in my area....
they dont nickel and dime you like the others do,john gets it rite the first time and if your not happy he will rework it for free and not charge you like the others will..
the last prop's i had done cost $225.00 3 blade and $250.00 for a 4 blade..this price is for a labbed propeller..
