Prop pitching for dummies
This is something that I would also like to learn how to do. It's not so much to save money. I simply would like to know and understand how to truely pitch the props and understand what needs to be down to reach the target rpm. I've read the tutorial in the How To's, but i need more of a prop pitching for dummies.

You can do it acurately with a dial/digital caliper also if you know trigonometry.

We should all push for jawz to offer an online prop pitching course for us. What do you guys think? Two nights a week for a hour or so. Professor Jeff....hmm, I like it! I'd take it.

Thanks Larry. ive read this a few times, i think i need more of hands on, and have someone watch me do it, and guide me as I go along.
a suggestion for next year at MB, Lets have a prop pitching class with hands on during one of the parking lot parties. or even at trophy party.
