    When you measure the leading edge, is it also the same method? From the tip of the blade to about 1 1/2" - 2" then try to find which one matches close to the gauge? Will I be comparing the bottom of the blade or the top of the blade when comparing the leading edge to the pitch gauge?

    Thumbs up

    I use the bottom of the blade to match the line on the gauge best. Use at least the last 2 to 2 1/2" of the blade. I measure up from the edge and mark it 2.5 inches with and felt marker then find the line on the gauge that matches closest to the blade from my mark to the end of the blade. Then I go on the gauge one line less and one line higher just to be sure I have the best gauge line that matches cloest to the blade. then this is the pitch of that blade on the leading edge. repete process on the trailing edges to record there pitch. I number all 3 blades and check each blade for exactly what it's tru measure ment is it is not uncomon the find one blade that does not match the other two. I also find waves in the blade in this last 2.5 inch aera and I tru the waves up till the blade follows these gauge lines matching exactly to the line. Tommy Jordan

    Leading edge is a little different than trailing edge. You want to place the prop in the gauges and mark the point where the leading edge first touches the gauge-- then you measure back approx 2 inches and that is where you want to bend.

    Trailing edge you just use the last approx 2 inches of the blade.
