Propeller balancing


Recommended Posts

Hi All.

I suspect my relatively new prop to be slightly out of balance. I'm getting cage vibration (a sort of zinging noise) that I can't remember getting with previous (overpitched) props, and my risers are shaking like mad. I've ordered a simple cone type lawn mower blade balancer, and I'm knocking up a hang type balancer. My question is - what type of laquer/varnish should I use to fine balance and how is it best applied - aerosol or brush? I'd like to varnish it anyway as it came from the manufacturer with a poor finish. It looks as though it had been laid on a surface when varnish wet.

Many thanks.
