Looking to buy original 35” aluminum prop for 

the pedestal fan, No balance or appearance issues please. Would consider pro repair on existing blade with 2” missing off tip. Considering all offers.

We tried getting an original blade copied and recast but didn’t have any interest.

I would buy 3 or 4 because at some point there will be none, but I think the minimum is going to be more like 10. Kind of like the GE collar gears. Thanks.

Have you tried a boat propeller repair service?  They can do some wonderful work making boat propellers look like brand new by fabricating a piece that has been broken out. 



I have had numerous propellers repaired that had parts of blades broken and chunks missing.  They do some masterful work.


Just a thought....

Thank you, coincidentally the above blade was rejected by S+S Propeller in NY, 50 yrs in business. Worker said it would not accept weld material to build up. Recommended a brass casting @ $800 lol. So there you go.

I was made to understand it is heating aluminum where the problem lies. It will be going 800 rpm, the piece could kill if it lets go. I’d be willing to try another shop but it’s like asking a plumber to work with a metal other than brass.

That leaves re-casting a blade that has very little demand, 2 so far by my count. We can ask again, all this new tech - -3d printing, etc - - -??

The 35’s seem to be coming out of the woodwork lately, I just found two. Yet none in bad enough shape to part out. Someone will find an extra I hope.

There’s a guy on the eastern shore in MD that repairs and balances aluminum boat props.  He recently welded an aluminum blade for me, though I haven’t tested it yet.

I’m about to head out to the shop and put my 35 back together. I can try fixing your blade if no one else is willing.

I was trying to remember their name Stan, they have fixed props for our boats in the past. Mike Hood as well.

Thank you all members for the suggestions and encouragement. I’ll definitely consider all, in the meantime going to Tom’s on 8/1. I could see Ray Hane driving west with the prop on his hood.
