    aluminum wear ring

    Will,I had some aluminum wear rings made a year ago out of cast and tried them on my two rxp's and all it did was wash out pit marks in them after about 3 hours.Now I'd like to try some 60/61 aluminum and see what will happen.

    You should try making them out of plastic. OR better yet stainless steel. I bet that might work pretty good maybe

    Water is gonna eat away any aluminum you can find. Just from experience (not in this application) don`t waste your time.

    have a look round some scrap yards i found a very large daimeter huydraulic ram which was stainless, when chopped up you can make 6 or 7 wear rings, hope this helps, i even had one made from mild steel once, ive since sold the ski, i still see the ski running in salt with no problems at all.

    Just had a talk with my friend that is going to make a stainless wear ring for me today and he is going to make it out of 3/16 stainless which he said is better than 17/4 stainless.I'm not sure of how hard 3/16 is compared to 17/4 but it won't hurt to try,it's free.

    duplex is highest quality stainless steel, more so than 316, les cooke uses aluminium wear rings, its softer than stainless so it will wear rather than the prop as it is a wear ring after all
