FIXED BLADE PROPELLERS

We manufacture a range of Bronze propellers from 8 inch diameter to 50 inch diameter. Standard propellers are manufactured in ‘Manganese Bronze’. All propellers can be manufactured in ‘Aluminium Bronze’ for extra strength and better resistance to electrolysis.

PROPELLER RECONDITIONING and RE-PITCHING

For Propeller Repair Click here

We can recondition Manganese bronze, Aluminium bronze and Aluminium (outboard and outdrive propellers). All Propellers are Re-welded if required and then polished, balanced, re-tracked and Aluminium Propellers are re-painted. The price depends on the size, material and amount of work required. Bronze propellers can also be re-pitched. It would be wise to contact us prior to sending or delivering a Propeller to check viability and get an estimate of cost. Some propellers can be bent beyond “the point of no return”, and if a propeller has severe electrolysis repair is not possible. As a good guide, if a propeller is held at the boss and a blade is tapped with a metal object, it should “ring”. If a dull thud results it is most likely beyond repair.

FOLDING PROPELLERS

 radice 1

Radice 4Radice 3Radice 2

Reduce drag during sailing the cost effective way. The opening operation is automatic and is caused by centrifugal force.

When changing from a fixed blade propeller to folding, keep in mind that the centreline of the blades on a fixed propeller is usually in the middle of the taper, but on a folding propeller it will be behind the thread on the shaft.

Also make certain that there is space for the blades to fold backwards.
