    Default Well I pulled the trigger!!

    Well I went and ordered two Dynasty 200DX's on friday, hope I made the right choice??

    I had one before and just hated it, but with that said I truly think that the machine had "other" issuses before I had got it.

    I think that I am too old school on Alum I would rather change me then mess with the settings.

    I picked up a small business fixing Alum prop's for boats, so I feel that the 200 will be a great machine for that type of repairs.

    Now to get rid of my HF-251D-1 box and a few other things to make mom'ma happy....

    Right on.
    You getting contractor kits with them or using existing torches and remotes?

    I got a contractor kit with mine (thumb remote), since most of my work is portable. Super handy having everything in that case, I made some notches in my case to clear the gas hose disconnect on the reg. Those quick disconnects are another time/ life saver when your always tearing down the machine for transport.

    Nope just the bare machines I have WAY TOO much junk already don't need more new stuff to push my other stuff into dust collection.

    I have a thumb and foot pedals already.

    but the quick connects for the gas hoses is what i will be investing in next......

    You'll find some interesting aluminum in those props. Some good, some not as much.

    May as well do stainless props while your at it. Just have to swing that hammer a bit harder to straighten the blades.

    Default Railmen, how do you

    balance the props after repair, or is it necessary to do so ? Hmmm, there`s a
    marina right around the corner from by shop. Thanks

    On aluminum props I think you'll find if all the blades are close to the same, then no worries.

    On stainless with higher RPM engines it becomes more important, not every prop shop will check. Again if the blades are the same diameter and thickness,,,, trace diameter on a table,, probably no need.

    Straight blades are far more important to prevent vibrations. The hub area will limit how well you could balance anyway.

    On an inboard, its a different story. The prop is on a long shaft. If these are not correct, it will be felt in the boat.

    The customer will let you know if its not close,, if you have a problem be sure the prop shaft isn't bent.

    Just some of what I've gathered in the past, I'm sure others can improve on it.
