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.

if your talking about the hex to loosen the prop out of the pump, its 1/2

no man, yamaha prop it's at least 3/4 or 1". Slides over teh driveshaft into a female hex that's broached into the prop snout.

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.

Here you go Mike I made a few of these up, I gave one to MRBTD. They are 1" hex coupling nuts I bought from McMaster then bored out the thread inside to .800 dia worked better then the skat POS
