New propeller and shaft for Slo-mo-shun IV

Billing Boats - Slo-mo-shun IV Posted on May 05, 2012 19:29:57

Today my goods from prop-shop arrived as I mentioned in my previous post regarding PT-15 Japan Torpedo Boat. Along with the parts for PT-15, I also ordered a new propeller and a drive shaft for my Slo-mo-shun IV.


The propeller specifications are ø: 35mm, 3 bladed, pitch 1.4 in stainless steel.

PT-15 props and brackets arrived

I don’t recall whether I mentioned this earlier, but I have asked prop-shop in England make bronze shaft brackets for my PT-15. They are custom made for me so this is probably the most expensive part of this boat. I felt that was needed as I don’t trust the plastic ones in the kit for running 20k+ rpm.

Furthermore I also ordered propellers and shafts from prop shop for PT-15. Prop-shop is the only place I have found that produces tiny brass propellers in high quality. Here are some pictures of it all:

The picture with the shafts also shows a 4mm shaft that I ordered for my Slo-mo-shun IV.
