It's hit and miss with rons props. Some folk get one with more than 2" pitch difference between blades. Most of the time his props have more pitch than advertised. Some have different diameters between the blades too...
In saying that some folk get one that works well out of the box.

I'd go 18p cleaver

Steel Developments are 38 for an ali or 62 for Stainless. (+ a couple of quid for re pitch)

I have had probably 30+ (You got to love Windermere ! )props done by them over the years and everyone has come back like new.

Trouble is it's difficult to work because the blades have been thinned which makes it near impossible to build It back upto it's original state. Waiting to get in contact with the marines team who apparently may have some or sale

Yep, 2" either way for the repitch, cost about 10 extra last time I had it done. Sorry, dont know about cupping, never needed to do it. Give them a ring, the lady who answers the phone knows pretty much everything their is to know about props.

If you want to cup an alloy prop just put it on a tow ball and gently beat it around. 0
