Prop bending tool?
OK, anybody here do their own prop tweaking? I have a watcon gauge, and want to try my own bending. Is there a tool for bending I can buy?

Yes 18 inch cresent will work fine. You need a vise a long threaded bolt with a spacer first then a washer big enough so the hub of the prop doesn't fall threw put prop on then another washer and then the nut screw it down tight

I used an old pump, shaft to hold it and take the ball out of my receiver hitch as my stand.
I also use an 18" crescent like Forrestt.
Here are my pics....
I don't have the WATCON gauge or the ones 2fast4u sells. I have the templates you can download and printed on clear transparency.
check out these threads:
make your own impeller gauge
Here are the ones Tommy Jordan sells

Thanks for sharing Billy.
Guys, remember, if you have the Dynafly, you can NOT just bend it. The pitch of the blade, coupled with a curved edge will either pull the blades away from the wear ring, or dig a hole into the wear ring.
