    I received my new Master Airscrew props, today...

    Please, take a looked at my photos. Is this normal meaning they are factory balanced or should I take a sharp blade and clean them up a bit.

    Looking forward to trying out the new blades, but this has me a little concerned.

    Thanks... MasterScrew1.jpg MasterScrew2.jpg

    I don't have any but don't see why you couldn't clean up that area around the hubs, then balance if needed.

    My set has those lines too, but although they are visible they are very shallow (superficial), so I doubt that they are physically big enough to have any measurable effect on the airflow. I'm quite sure that any attempt to remove them would actually result in causing more turbulence, and unbalance the props too. Just my 2ยข worth.

    I shaved the excess off of mine. I highly doubt it's part of the balancing process.

    Cleaned up and deburred all the edges. The MA prop run a lot quieter and the decrease in wind noise is a big plus.. Definitely better than I expected...
