Lightbulb Want to fix your props or get in the business?

Here's a great deal on ebay for a huge selection of pitch blocks and tooling. I'd be interested in the tools and blocks to fix my props, but the seller doesn't want to separate anything. He's got what looks to be well over $16,000 worth of pitch blocks, mandrels and other tooling for a reserve price of $2,700. If you boat where there's a lot of debris (like I used to), this could pay for itself pretty quickly.

Too Old - This could be another new business for you!
Retired! Boating full-time now.

This looks to be from a local shop that is/was Swift's Propellor Service. I have never used them, but Lapse of Reason here on OSO has, and he can give you his opinion. Its all in the prop 'person' though, and not the equipment.

If anyone wants a closer look, they are in Woodbridge, Virginia, which is where I live. If you do the legwork and are interested, I will go take a local look for you and give you an unbiased opinion on the condition of the tools... (best I can, I am not a prop guy).
