Default Chicago area prop shop

Anyone besides Chicago Propeller / Air Marine that can fine tune a prop for me. N/W of city would be great. I need someone local as I would like it done by the July 5th when we leave w/boat on vacation.

Call Jerry Stark @ Oasis Marine 773-731-5041. He has a guy that labs props for some of the race boats. I had him do a set of mine and they turned out great.

DAH is 262-534-4440 (Cord you missed a digit)
It was a four week wait last time I called him.
In a bind? try M&G around Elk Grove Village (I think). Not a performance guy, but he'll get you in the water.

Minimum of one month with DAH. My prop turned out great. He must be pretty good. When I dropped off my prop he was working on two props from a Venezuelan racing team.

Thanx, I have a prop that works well but has a little vibration at idle. Just want to get it checked and maybe worked as well.

I've used Phils Prop Shop in Lansing, IL. I just had mine cupped and polished, not labbed. He has always been a lot faster than a 4 week wait, at least for me. I don't have the number.
