    Default Steel chopper questions

    I've got a Menkens steel chopper prop I like but would like to have it repitched. There's no issues with repitching these props? Also it's steel and I boat on brackish water and it will flash rust before I can get it home. What are my options galvanizing, chroming, paint? I tried paint and it don't stay on to long.

    If you mean a cleaver prop for a hydro made by Menkins I think the can be trimmed for size but I don't think for pitch they're heat treated in making. Wipe it when you pull out and spray with chain oil or wd40

    How about copper, nickel or bronze or is any kind of plating is out? How about dipping it in something like a stain or Mercurochrome, anything?
