    skat prop tool dimentions

    does anyone know the size of the hex that skat uses for their prop tools? I need to make one that won't collapse, and i dont have the prop at work with me.

    Thanks!

    the trick to using the Skat tool is to always use a boxed end wrench and to never use an open ended wrench

    Phillip, I did. the dam thing is paper thin and it twisted. I want to make a new one that is closer to the dimension of the driveshaft.

    I have never had a problem with a 1'' box wrench. Also if the prop has been on there for a while and is really tite give it some heat.
