Hyperformance Products Inc. Balance-Rite Prop Balancer
A sharpened and balanced propeller is critical to a boat’s driveline efficiency and overall performance, and the Balance-Rite CNC-machined, anodized, billet-aluminum magnetic balancer from Hyperformance Products helps you to quickly and precisely take care of props with 3/16- and 1/4-inch hubs; a 1/8 shaft is available separately.
When rotated, an unbalanced propeller swings back and forth and stops with the heaviest point at the bottom. Mark the low point.
Start by sharpening the front edge of the heavy blade. Keep the trailing edge flat and square.
Work back from the leading edge over the outer convex side of the propeller.
Flexible coarse sanding blocks make fast work of removing material evenly.
Check the prop’s balance often; keep going until the blade is slightly lighter than the other side.
Switch to the other side, working from the leading edge back.
Work with progressively finer-grit sandpaper to remove any gouges in the propeller.
A balanced propeller will stop in any orientation on the balancer with no further movement.
Immediately hit the sink and wash your hands thoroughly to remove any metal particles.
