OK, sometimes the bolt-on prop adapters are not supplied for a motor or they get lost or bent and you can't find replacement that will fit. So the cure for that is to run the shaft out where the adapter used to be and use the collet style adapter that grips the shaft. Or maybe use a prop saver instead of an adapter.

All things considered, and as a guy that prefers using prop savers and does not mind having to change shafts around, I seldom use the bolt on prop adapters. I consider them sort of trouble some because they are easily bent and also harder on props. But that is because of my flying conditions, style, and/or skills.
