I don't know what you call decent. I have two propellers that I have flown behind and would not hesitate to install them again. I have no idea what a prop shop might think of them. They are both 8 bolt.

One is a climb prop The hub says DM1a170 currently 76/52. This prop started life as a 76/49. I measured the diameter and it is actually 75.5". A true climb prop is considered to be a 76/51 for a 170. This being slightly shorter probably makes up for the 1" higher pitch of 52 which it is. It was operated on my old 170 out of a 1400 ft sea level strip for years. I took it off for a standard prop as we where no longer operating out of the short strip.

The second is a Sensenich M74D pitched at 56. I installed and ran this prop to compare it to my McCauley 1A170 76/53 as Cessna says the McCauley had a slight advantage over the Sensenich. I couldn't tell the difference between them. The M74D'/56 is a standard prop for a 170.

I'll take $500 for either of them where they sit in Hatfield PA. (I'll meet you at KUKT if you'd fly in to pick them up) I might ship them for the cost and $100 for my time if I could figure out how to do that.

Shipping a prop can be done within a 8” PVC pipe with caps glued or threaded on the end, and filled with P-nuts. Be forewarned however, the ENDS/TIPS of the prop should be wrapped in foam because I’m told by my prop-shop they can be hurt by dropping them vertically, if that makes sense.

Mark the outside “Do Not Bend” and “Do Not Drop” and “Fragile”.

Bring them to Convention! :wink:

Thanks George, I wouldn't have thought of that. Now to figure out where to actually ship on as this would not be a Fed Ex/UPS type of shipment.

Check the US Postal Service. You'd be surprised what they will ship. And if they can do it, their rates usually are significantly lower than other options. I recently shipped a 48" x 48" x 10" sealed wooden crate containing an Aeronca Champ seaplane door (total weight 50 lbs) via the USPS. International, no less (to Canada). No problem. They have limits, but it's worth talking to them.

This is quite true and in-fact can be very inexpensive and faster than one might expect. About 5 years ago I shipped some loose parts in a 2’ X 4’ X 4’ large box that weighed 65 lbs from Texas to California... it cost $18 and was there in 5 days.

A little research shows that I could likely ship a prop via USPS, Fed Ex and UPS.

The trick is the packaging. A quick search for a 8" pvc tube as George suggested was not fruitful and sources found put a 10' sample at over $100+shipping to get in my hands. The caps are $15 each.

I did have the opportunity to view a Sensenich prop shipping box. It was quite stout cardboard with at least 8" of card board cushioning at each end just as George mentioned the tips need protecting.

Those prop shipping boxes are sturdy enough to be used many times. And when we receive a prop,we keep the box (and foam inserts) around for re-use.

Thanks Bruce, I need an 8 bolt, I might fly down for the heck of it and maybe try it on, fly it and see how I like it, if that's okay
