Local prop refurbishment?

Anyone give me info on a local company (Portsmouth/Southampton) that specializes in prop refurbishment. I know about Steel developments and I know they're good, no offence but just like to deal face to face. I have a Stainless steel prop that needs checking out and conversion to merc fitment.

I'd heard of a company called Propeller Revolutions in Poole, I think I'm in need of some rebushing as not only the hub not suitable for Merc fitment but is also running untrue similar to the Alloy one that I started the thread with, but much worse!

I use streamlined, as I can call in on my way home from work to his house close to the A31 if I arrange it with him.
I'm calling in to see him hopefully Tuesday evening if you want me to drop something off.
I'm picking up a set of 19inch blades for my Hustler coz I wrecked my 17inch standard OMC prop on the beach on Saturday.

A question of balance

Ok, I've turned my propeller and painted it. Now can any person answer me this techy question: Before I turned any meat off the prop I wanted to check the balance to see how it would change after the mod. I was very surprised to see that I needed a 7 gram counter weight on the hub to correct an imbalace on a NEW prop. What are the limits for prop balancing? Is it common for NEW props to be out of balance?
