    i don't know of anyone ,in this area,that I would use.i've yet to see a shop with modern measuring equipment. if you've stainless outboard wheels,pitch changing those is just about impossible - just dropping that info. you want a prop shop with accurate scan equipment - hale MRI machines are not cheap,using a pitch block,that's gonna get you close...
    can we please stop using the word ISSUE ? it's a PROBLEM

    While not in your area, Homosassa Propeller did a great job re-pitching a stainless propeller for me.  He won't change the pitch more than 1" on a stainless prop for structural reasons. He can add or remove some cupping as well.

    Thanks both of you.  It's an SS prop.  I appreciate it.

    I've used General Propeller in Bradenton in the past with very good results.

    Are they both being used on a twin engine set up? If so I would not re-pitch, I would buy a matching prop and sell the one you don't want.

    General Propeller is the only place I know left.  I have used them on several props over the last couple of years and have been very happy with their work.  They pick up at many of the dealers and marine stores in Jacksonville.  Turnaround for me was a week.  Be sure to check ahead of time if they will change the pitch on a prop.  I seem to remember that they stopped doing that.

    after reading the post form Doc Stressor I dropped off a stainless prop to mike at Hommosassa prop, he did a great job, faster turn around a and less costly than where I've been sending them.
